Sugata Sanshiro is based off the classic Tsuneo Tomita's judo saga "Sugata Sanshiro." The story has been dramatized many times before, most famously in the 1943 Toho film that marked the directing debut of Akira Kurosawa.
Shigeaki Kato plays the title role of a stubborn young man who travels from his hometown in Fukushima Prefecture to Tokyo in order to master the martial art of jujutsu during the early days of the Meiji Restoration. He ends up being one of the first disciples in jujutsu's offshoot called judo.
Most of the drama revolves around Sanshiro's pure intentions and lack of guile, which always seems to land him in hot water.
