Description Edit

Nine-year-old Ayako lives in Sendai, Japan. Ayako loves to climb trees, play her piano (which can be silenced so that it can only be heard through earphones), and go to calligraphy lessons. We follow Ayako and her mother as they go grocery shopping.

In the Award Winning Families of the World Series, viewers get a peek at the everyday lives of two families - usually an urban and a rural family. We are introduced to a child who helps narrate his or her activities. The footage is fantastic - intimate but not intrusive. Lots of interesting facts about the country are presented from a realistic viewpoint which brings other cultures up close.
