Darkie I've watched Osawa play as Minakata Jin in both Jin and Jin 2. He gave off a nice-fuzzy-feeling type of a guy. Wonder how he acts in this series.

peggy Admire Osawa and found out about this drama. It is quite remarkable. I do not understandJapanese language but this is a wonderful story. I saw one episode and am hoping I can find all the remaining episodes. New and interesting setting in Iwate. Quite a different feeling about this drama.
