Akibiyori

Synopsis: Family and friends of the late Shuzo Miwa have gathered for his annual memorial service, this one marking the seventh anniversary of his passing. Three of his long time friends - married Shuzo Taguchi, married Soichi Mamiya, and widowed Seiichiro Hirayama - have long known and admitted to each other that they have always been attracted to his widow, Akiko Miwa, who they believe has gotten even more beautiful as she has matured. The three friends take it upon themselves to find a husband for the Miwa's now twenty-four year old daughter, Ayako Miwa, who they believe as beautiful as her mother, and who, as a pure innocent, deserves a good husband. Their self-appointed task is despite them knowing that Ayako does not want them to do so. She doesn't want to get married, at least not yet, as she struggles with her traditional sensibilities in post-war modern Japan. Her first priority as she sees it is to take care of her widowed mother, who would be alone if she were to get married. The diff

00:
03:10,340 -- 00:03:13,537

That sounds delicious.

9

00:
03:13,740 -- 00:03:14,695

What does?

10

00:
03:17,300 -- 00:03:21,373

We're talking about where to get steak.

He knows a good restaurant. Where is it?

11

00:
03:21,500 -- 00:03:25,015

Do you know the Honmoku-tei in Ueno?

lt's right next to it.

12

00:
03:25,140 -- 00:03:27,415

lt's run by an old couple.

13

00:
03:27,580 -- 00:03:30,538

Really? l'd like to try it.

14

00:
03:30,740 -- 00:03:33,732

l usually go to the pork restaurant

behind the Matsuzakaya.

15

00:
03:33,860 -- 00:03:34,849

You do, too, right?

16

00:
03:34,980 -- 00:03:38,416

l've been going there

ever since it was just a little stall.

17

00:
03:39,180 -- 00:03:43,856

That was when we were students. We were

always hungry, but didn't have any money.

18

00:
03:43,980 -- 00:03:47,859

We would pool our money, then go there

together. Miwa used to come, too.

19

00:
03:48,500 -- 00:03:52,015

Really? You were friends with him

when you were that young?

20

00:
03:52,300 -- 00:03:55,258

Yeah. We also lived in the same dormitory

at secondary school.

21

00:
03:55,700 -- 00:03:56,689

Did you really?

22

00:
03:57,140 -- 00:04:00,257

You've been very kind to me, too.

23

00:
04:01,900 -- 00:04:04,778

He was an excellent manager,

always very calm.

24

00:
04:08,820 -- 00:04:11,095

This is already the seventh memorial

of his death.

25

00:
04:11,220 -- 00:04:12,812

Time flies.

26

00:
04:15,140 -- 00:04:17,335

How many years has it been for you?

27

00:
04:17,460 -- 00:04:18,495

What do you mean?

28

00:
04:18,620 -- 00:04:23,740

-Since you lost your wife.

-our, almost five years.

29

00:
04:24,340 -- 00:04:27,218

Hey, the tea twig is sticking up.

30

00:
04:27,340 -- 00:04:31,128

The tea twig...

Maybe something good's going to happen.

31

00:
04:31,260 -- 00:04:33,330

A twig sticking up in your tea

while you're in the temple

32

00:
04:33,460 -- 00:04:35,496

could mean

that your dead wife is coming to get you.

33

00:
04:35,620 -- 00:04:37,929

Oh, shut up! l'm not ready to go yet.

34

00:
04:44,580 -- 00:04:49,256

-Uncle Miwa is so late.

-Yes. l wonder what happened.

35

00:
04:50,460 -- 00:04:52,132

Oh, here he is.

36

00:
04:57,820 -- 00:04:59,936

Hi. Sorry l'm late.

37

00:
05:11,340 -- 00:05:17,813

l'm Shizuo Miwa's brother.

Thank you all for coming here today.

38

00:
05:19,820 -- 00:05:25,531

Being a country man,

l got lost on my way here.

39

00:
05:26,900 -- 00:05:29,095

Good to see you, Mr Hirayama, Mr Taguchi.

40

00:
05:29,380 -- 00:05:33,817

lt's been a long time.

Did you just arrive in Tokyo today?

41

00:
05:33,940 -- 00:05:38,218

No, l had other business to attend to,

so l came a day early.

42

00:
05:39,220 -- 00:05:42,018

Thank you for taking care of my son

last time he was there.

43

00:
05:42,140 -- 00:05:45,177

Don't mention it.

44

00:
05:45,620 -- 00:05:46,894

What happened?

45

00:
05:47,020 -- 00:05:52,617

My son went to Lake Haruna last winter

to go skating with his friends.

46

00:
05:52,980 -- 00:05:55,255

They stayed at his inn.

47

00:
05:56,060 -- 00:05:58,733

Thank you for the present he brought me.

48

00:
05:58,860 -- 00:06:02,648

lt was my pleasure. Did you like them?

49

00:
06:02,860 -- 00:06:05,977

l pickled those spring vegetables myself.

50

00:
06:06,100 -- 00:06:08,136

lt was nothing special,

51

00:
06:08,260 -- 00:06:12,173

just a small token of my appreciation.

52

00:
06:12,340 -- 00:06:14,012

lt was a wonderful gift.

53

00:
06:14,140 -- 00:06:16,813

Were those the wild vegetables

that we ate earlier?

54

00:
06:16,940 -- 00:06:18,817

They were delicious.

55

00:
06:19,660 -- 00:06:21,730

lt's interesting that as we get older,

56

00:
06:21,860 -- 00:06:25,057

we seem to enjoy these things

more and more.

57

00:
06:25,180 -- 00:06:26,533

You're right.

58

00:
06:26,660 -- 00:06:32,815

Things like seaweed with carrots,

mushrooms, dried radish and bean curd...

59

00:
06:33,540 -- 00:06:35,690

As well as steak and pork cutlets?

60

00:
06:42,700 -- 00:06:44,452

ls everyone here?

61

00:
06:48,180 -- 00:06:50,648

l think we can begin.

62

00:
06:53,540 -- 00:06:55,098

Please come to the main hall.

63

00:
07:00,060 -- 00:07:01,573

-After you.

-Thank you.

64

00:
08:28,620 -- 00:08:31,692

-You're late.

-Yeah, l got held up.

65

00:
08:32,500 -- 00:08:36,129

-We're just starting.

-Then l got here too early.

66

00:
09:21,300 -- 00:09:23,734

The prayer was so long today.

67

00:
09:23,860 -- 00:09:25,339

Yes, it was quite long.

68

00:
09:25,460 -- 00:09:28,293

You're in no position to complain.

You got here late.

69

00:
09:30,380 -- 00:09:32,291

Thank you all.

70

00:
09:33,540 -- 00:09:39,012

Mr Taguchi told me

that shorter prayers were better,

71

00:
09:39,140 -- 00:09:41,813

so l asked the priest to keep it short.

72

00:
09:42,700 -- 00:09:43,689

lsn't that right?

73

00:
09:46,060 -- 00:09:48,858

The monk wanted to please you.

74

00:
09:49,380 -- 00:09:52,019

You must have paid him well.

75

00:
09:52,140 -- 00:09:55,132

l'm not that generous.

76

00:
09:57,420 -- 00:10:02,619

We had a nice, cool day today.

The day of the funeral was so hot.

77

00:
10:02,740 -- 00:10:06,449

lt was really hot. l remember.

l was wearing a winter coat.

78

00:
10:07,300 -- 00:10:09,495

How old were you, Ayako?

79

00:
10:10,300 -- 00:10:11,779

l was 18.

80

00:
10:11,940 -- 00:10:14,170

-And now?

-Twenty-four.

81

00:
10:14,300 -- 00:10:16,939

That's a suitable age to get married, isn't it?

82

00:
10:17,100 -- 00:10:20,376

Yes. Please tell us if you know someone

who would be good for her.

83

00:
10:20,860 -- 00:10:24,296

That shouldn't be too hard.

Ayako is so beautiful.

84

00:
10:24,900 -- 00:10:28,131

What's your type? Don't be shy.

85

00:
10:29,700 -- 00:10:31,258

Come on, tell us.

86

00:
10:32,940 -- 00:10:35,818

How do you feel about my type,

for example?

87

00:
10:35,940 -- 00:10:36,895

l like it.

88

00:
10:37,980 -- 00:10:39,379

Then how about me?

89

00:
10:39,860 -- 00:10:41,418

l like your type, too.

90

00:
10:42,260 -- 00:10:47,050

l'm confused. They're so different.

91

00:
10:48,620 -- 00:10:49,973

What do you think of me?

92

00:
10:50,980 -- 00:10:52,049

l like you, too.

93

00:
10:52,180 -- 00:10:55,217

-She only said ''you, too''. You're out.

-l'm out?

94

00:
10:55,340 -- 00:10:56,898

You shouldn't have asked.

95

00:
10:58,620 -- 00:11:00,895

lt was a bad question to ask her.

96

00:
11:01,220 -- 00:11:05,338

Seriously, though,

l might know someone suitable.
