This Week's Film: Hachi: A Dog's Tale
Cuisine: Japanese

Synopsis: Hachi, a Japanese Akita, accompanies his master, a college professor, to the train station each morning, and meets him upon his arrival each evening. When the professor dies, Hachi continues to wait for him at the train station each day for nine years thereafter. Based on the true story of a loyal dog who stole the hearts of an entire nation, Hachi is the Americanized version of this endearing Japanese legend.

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Japanese recipe.
