There is the most famous soap opera in Japan.

That has started in more than 50 years ago, but the setting and story has changed every six months.

The program airs 8 to 8.15 in the morning. I guess that the TV company thinks most viewers are housewives who see off thier family and have a little time for watching TVs.

The same episode airs 12.45 to 13.00 in the afternoon, which seems strange though, the company might think it better for those who missed the morning broadcasing.

My parents are old so that they forget the story even though they watched it in the morning.

The current story is about the couple who manufactured whisky in Japan for the first time.

The Japanese man went to Scotland to learn how to make whisky, and met his wife who is Scotish.

It is based on a true story. In the drama, the Scotish wife is facing lots of cultural differences in Japanwhile supporting his husband.

I sympathise with her becasue how hard she must have had becasue in the early 1900s.
