The cover cloth has faded with time

Film director Hirokazu Koreeda, internationally acclaimed for films such as Like Father, Like Son, directed a film adaptation of Akimi Yoshida’s best-selling manga Umimachi Diary. This photograph collection captures for posterity the youthful vibrancy and beauty of popular actresses Haruka Ayase, Masami Nagasawa, Kaho, and Suzu Hirose who play the four sisters in the story. Mikiya Takimoto’s photographs and Chie Morimoto’s art direction create one more story, different from the story told in the film.
