There were some quite funny moments and the storyline was fairly interesting. I really enjoyed the Aunt Shizuka character. She made it for me.

Interesting drama about a traditional japanese resturant but too short to really develop the characters.

Short drama that had some few heartwarming parts. The video quality was bad.
