Synopsis
The 61st NHK Asadora Drama is Asuka.

Set in Kyoto in the home of a traditional Japanese candymaker, Asuka is the story of one young girl's dream to one day walk in her father's shoes and become a top candymaker in the male-dominated world of wagashi (Japanese confectionery). Asuka grows to be a healthy, adventurous young girl with a deep curiosity and a desire to become a candymaker like her father.

This NHK drama is one of the best in years with an excellent cast, a well-developed story based on extensive research into the traditional worlds of candymaking and the tea ceremony in Kyoto, and beautiful scenery and settings in Kyoto and the surrounding areas.
