NHK World presents an Original Drama

NHK presents a new heart-warming comedy drama for NHK WORLD focusing on Japanese ordinary but unique life style. The programme is scheduled to be aired from 19-20 November.

Englishman Bryan Jenkins moves to Tokyo with his family to live with his father-in-law when his Japanese mother-in-law passes away. While his wife heads out to work in the city each day and his daughter strives to adapt to a new school and country, he must come to grips with being a homemaker in Japan.

Each day presents new challenges, whether it be the Japanese bathing culture, learning how to make a proper school lunch – all alongside a silent, gruff father-in-law. Full of laughter and love – and plenty of cultural misunderstandings- witness life in Tokyo through the eyes of a foreigner who just wants to keep his family safe and happy.
