hiya~
This may be a weird question but hopefully you'll get what I'm trying to ask.
I want to watch a good drama or movie that shows a lot of Japanese culture and scenery...something that captures what modern Japan is like. The people, the environment, the energy, you know, the works.
Think like the movie, "lost in translation", I don't know how accurate of a portrayal that movie was of Japan...but it definitely spent some time on highlighting a bit of the culture and people and whatnot.

I'm just craving to know more about the place, it's so intriguing to me, it will be a while before I have the time/money to travel there and find out myself :P

OR if not, any good drama suggestions will do too! I just finished 1 litre of tears which was extremely depressing. Can't wait till the HYD movie is uploaded and subbed!!
needd to feed the craving~

april snow.

but it tackles more of the language barrier between two people (a korean guy and a japanese girl)
most parts of the film were shot in japan.

that's the only movie i could think of right now. hehe.
