The Lasting Persimmon
|Synopsis||Risaki is coming back home to her wintery countryside, Yamagata which is 400km away from Tokyo. There is seemingly unchanging snowy life of her beloved family and home village– snow shoveling, making pickles, bridges over a big river covered with snow, and kaki fruits left unharvested on its tree.|
