- Japan's most prominent and popular comedy film series celebrates its 50th anniversary with its 50th film. Tora-san is back on the screen!
- On the sixth anniversary of the death of Mitsuo Suwa’s wife, a memorial service is held at Kurumaya, formerly a long-standing traditional confectionery store on the approach to Taishakuten Temple in Shibamata. It has been reborn as a modern cafe, but the living quarters in the back remain unchanged.
After the service, conversation inevitably turns to lively reminiscences of the past, especially the many times that Torajiro, a traveling salesman and the black sheep of the Kuruma family, brought his latest unrequited love interest back with him, sending the house into an uproar... Half a century has now passed since Torajiro, fondly (and not-so-fondly) referred to as Tora, first returned to Kurumaya after leaving home in his youth.
