What makes his ramen so special? Why is “Taishoken” beloved by so many?

Based on a moving novel of the same title (Tsunagu, original title) for which the author, Mizuki Tsujimura, was awarded the Yoshikawa Eiji Prize for New Writers, this story is about people who hope to see someone special they have lost. It bears witness to the emotional conflicts and growth of the young man who becomes deeply involved in those people’s lives as the “Connector”, or the intermediary between the living and the dead. It is an exquisite tale about the bonds and connections between people, things valued dearly by the Japanese today.
