Be with You

Synopsis: Mio's death leaves husband Takumi and 6-year-old son Yuji fending for themselves. Taku occasionally suffers fainting spells, is disorganized, and fears that his health hindered Mio's happiness. Yuji overheard relatives speculate that his delivery compromised her health, and he blames himself for her death. Mio left him a picture book in which she departs for "The Archive Star" but re-appears during the rainy season the following year, and he eagerly awaits her return. Taking a walk in the forest outside their house, Taku and Yuji find a woman sheltering from the rain and immediately accept her as Mio. She has no memory or sense of identity, but comes home to live with them anyway. She asks Taku how they met and fell in love, and he recounts a tale of years of missed chances starting in high school until she encouraged their marriage years later. As the rainy season nears its end, Yuji finds the "time capsule" he hid with his mother before her death. Mio's diary is inside, and its versi

Start getting up, Dad.

You've slept in.



Good morning.

Good morning.

You brought it very quickly.

The truth is, the store

is going out of business.

Is that so?

But things turned out all right because

I could keep my promise to the end.

I'm grateful to you for doing

this for such a long time.

I wish you a happy birthday.

Thank you very much.



What happened to

the new toothbrushes?

I told you yesterday.

That year...

in the season of rain,

the miracle that came to us...

Began in this forest.

A miracle of 6 weeks.

Perhaps it may have been...

A magical vision of the

other side of the fog.


There is no mistaking...

That we met my mother.

Be With You...

It's already been a year

since Mio passed away.

Are things going well for you,

Takumi and Yuji?

You're not in good health, Takumi.

It really was...

A mistake to have

Yuji so carelessly.

It was that difficult a labor.

Are you raising Yuji well?


Where do all the people

go when they die?

They're all at the Akaibu star.

Your mother is on that star too.

Well, can Mommy

really come back?


Won't she?

Because Mommy doesn't lie.

Then when the

rainy season comes...

Mommy will come back

It's true, right?


All set. Let's eat.


Sorry, I messed up

the fried egg.

That's all right I can eat it.

Let's enjoy the meal.

Let's eat.

Dad, I'm heading out first.

See you later.



Don't be late!

All right.

I'm leaving.


Got some on me.

I'll be back later.



This is for special delivery.


- Do it like this.

- Ah.

It will be easier to take

care of things in this order.

Thank you.

Not at all.

Pardon me.


I'm sorry.

Not at all.

- So this is just a question but...

- Eh?

You're wearing

winter clothes so...

I'm sorry.

Not at all.

And so the rainy season,

has finally come.

The rainy season...

Do you like rain?

Well uh...

But there's a

festival this weekend.

Do you have plans to

take Yuji some place?

Well, if it's all right with you,

could I take Yuji and...



No, it's nothing.

This is all set.

Thank you.

No problem.

Who's going to the festival?

- Me!

- I am!

I'm going to go

with my mom and dad.

You're not going to

the festival, Yuji?


In my family, my dad...

Can't go to places

with so many people.

I see.

Please sit down.

What is that?

Yuji, hung it up.

Yeah, Yuji put it there!

It's cute.

All right, class is starting.

This lesson is in arithmetic.

Hey, Doctor.

Why can't Dad go to places

with so many people?

Is it a disease?

Yeah, it is.

You're father... well...

It would be similar...

To smelling gasoline fumes

from being near a car.

It's not a sickness

in his head or in his heart.



But wouldn't your father be happy?


Because he has you.


I'm sorry for

being late, Doctor.

It's fine. Take your time.

Poor Yuji.

Why do you say that?

Because his parent is like this.

It's nothing like that.

You're trying hard though

everyone around you is against it.

And I think you are being a

very remarkable father to him.

No, I am not. Not in the least.

I wish I could do so

many things for him.

Like normal parents can.

It's already been one year...

Since Mio passed away.

These days...

Thoughts of Mio keep

rising into my head.

I know that...

Just looking at things like pictures

won't make me feel Mio but...

Is that so?


Mio said she would return.


Are you talking about the

rainy season return story?


Having her return during the

Yoshikazu Okada

Yoshikazu Okada (岡田 良一), born February 27, 1901 in the Aoyama area of Tokyo's Minato Ward, also known as Kōtama Okada, (岡田 光玉) was the founder of a new religious movement in Japan (Shinshūkyō) generally referred to as Mahikari. Yoshikazu Okada was born into a wealthy family as the son of Inasaburo, a major general in the Imperial Japanese Army. Okada, who studied with Prince Chichibu (Yasuhito) and others who came from prominent Japanese families, graduated from the Japanese Army Officer Training School in 1922 and was commissioned a lieutenant in the Japanese Imperial Guard. After serving in military campaigns in China and Indochina, Okada retired from the army in 1941 due to a back injury with the rank of lieutenant colonel. Yoshikazu Okada established the Mahikari organization in 1959, which became known as Sekai Mahikari Bunmei Kyodan in 1963, and assumed the name of "Kōtama" ("Sphere of Light"). In 1974, with Okada's passing, there were court hearings held over several years. An amicable settlement was reached (wakai). Sakae Sekiguchi assumed leadership of Sekai Mahikari Bunmei Kyodan, and in 1978, Keishu Okada established Sukyo Mahikari. more…
