Yasashii Jikan 優しい時間 – Release Jan 05

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:

This drama is a simple story about the relationship between a father Wakui Yukichi (Terao Akiraand) 寺尾聰 and the son Wakui Takuro (Ninomiya Kazunari) 二宮和也 after the death of the mother Wakui Megumi (Ootake Shinobu) 大竹しのぶ during a car accident. The accident happen when Wakui Takuro was driving and his mother sitting beside him. Wakui Yukichi was in New York when the accident happened. The father blames the son for causing the death of his mother and decided not to see his son again. The father Wakui Yukichi then quit his job and moves to Megumi's hometown Furano, Hokkaido. He opened a coffee house named "森の時計" meaning the forest clock. His son Wakui Takuro moves to Hokkaido as well. Feeling guilty and without his father knowing, he stays in a town name Biei close to Furano. There he works and study as a student of a pottery maker. Both father and son did not spoke or see each other. Things started to change when the lovely Minagawa Azusa (Nagasawa Masami) 長澤まさみ the employee of “the Forest Clock” coffee house met Wakui Takuro.

Feeling and Comments:

Having a hot cup of coffee and enjoying the white scenery during winter is just great. Able to open up such a coffee house just like the drama after retirement is one of the best things to do. The story line of this drama is pretty simple and straight forward. The main focus of this drama is to bring out the feelings of the father, the son and some other characters. Every customer that comes to the coffee house has a story to tell. We often assume that we understand the people around us, and that we know what people are thinking. That is just too simple minded. Every word we said and every action we take affected people around us. Sometimes we might just give out wrong signal or sign to others that we absolute have no intention of what so ever. Thus to avoid misunderstanding we must take times to sit down to talk and listen carefully. A few hours of conversation can prevent few years of misunderstanding. Those years are worth lot more then the few hours talk. But then who knows what we might get at the end. Learning to understand each other is a life time process. Even for people that are very close to each other, there is no excuse.

Things that caught my eyes:

The coffee house, the white snow, the yellow leaves of autumn and the hand grind coffee creates a very beautiful scene. The background music creates a very worm and peaceful environment that fits perfectly to the drama.

Japan Drama Rating:

Worth watching it. The scene, the music and the touching story are very satisfactory.
