This film shows off the directorial and VFX talents of the director and was nominated in almost every major category at the 2008 Japan Academy Awards.

Set in 1959. Following the completion of Tokyo Tower a year before, Tokyo wins the race to host the 1964 Olympic Games and Japan is entering a period of rapid economic growth. A heartwarming story of the people living on the lively ‘Third Street’, which triggers nostalgia for the “Showa Era” of Japan.
