Although I spent only one week in Tokyo, with all its wonders, the Shitamachi is still my favorite place; definitely the "real" Tokyo. It is my concept of the old Tokyo of the 1950's and prior to that. The Tokyo of Yasujiro Ozu.

I would like to know what is the source material for the series. Is it based on someone's fictional account of life in 1960's Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc. (since these are the primary places where Japanese were living at that time) or is it based on a memoir? or what?

I am an American who would love to see this drama, but most of us don't speak Japanese. (well, not very well). I hope the producers will pay to have sub-titles in English.

you guys in Tokyo, she does not look anything like L Ga Ga; Perry has incredible Big Blue eyes (somehow enhanced); very good performer (on US TV).
