CREATION OF SHORT STORIES ALL AROUND JAPAN: 3 SHORT STORIES

Iwate Pefecture × Masami Kakinuma
"Go for it"
Years have passed since Yuto last visited his grandmother in Iwate Prefecture. The first evening at her house, he encounters a little girl; along with fond memories, a deep-seated worry comes rushing back to him. The worry haunts him until he takes his leave...

Shizuoka Prefecture × Kento Norikane
"The Two of Us, in a Town with a View of the Sea"
Close friends since childhood, Kanna and Miya grow up running through Atami. One day they decide to post on social media a photo of themselves posing in front of the statue of OMiya and Kan'ichi. Hard feelings ensue.

Fukuoka Prefecture × Bin Sugawara
"Jars of Amber"
When the protagonist moves into a home she bought in the suburban neighborhood outside of Fukuoka where she and her parents lived when she was small, she brings along cuttings of plum trees that her mother had tenderly cared for before she passed away. A story that follows plum trees between Fukuoka and Tokyo and the family memories that go with them as well as the beginning of the protagonist's new lifestyle.

Panel Discussion: Creation of stories all around Japan Project (English subtitled) is now on YouTube.
