In Tokyo, the poor working class Akimotos own and operate a fish shop, they having had to move their storefront onto a side alley from the main street after the war which has negatively affected their business. Twenty year old Yôichi, the second oldest of five offspring and the oldest son, works in the shop with his mother, he the heir apparent to managing the shop, which may be sooner than later as his father is in ill health. Even if she did have an interest in the shop, Yôichi's older sister, Toyoko, is expected to get married and provide for whoever her husband. In her total self-interest, Toyoko wants to get as far away from their poverty and the fish shop as possible, she rather marrying for wealth than for love. None of this situation sits well with Yôichi, who too has always hated the fish shop - he embarrassed by always smelling like fish - but feels like it is his obligation in their current situation. He truly dreams of becoming a mariner like his deceased uncle, and with his best friend Seiji Harada as his confidante, fantasizes about the life of the young woman he spies through binoculars in a distant window he can see from his own bedroom. As one setback after another occurs in Yôichi's life taking him farther and farther away from any of what he really wants to the fish shop as his destiny, he may have to reevaluate his goals to make the best of what cards he has been dealt.

The Garden of Women

Established in 1908 by its current President, Shorin's Women's …
Established in 1908 by its current President, Shorin's Women's College in Kyoto is a private institution of higher learning - a boarding school - although most treat it as a glorified finishing school for the primarily wealthy student body to emerge as suitable candidates of wives for prominent husbands. The policies and teachings of the school are old fashioned, strict and repressive, almost like the students are in a jail without the locks. The policies and teachings are all under the guise of the administrators caring for the girls, whereas they are arguably most concerned about the view of the school to the outside world, they relying on donations from wealthy industrialists to survive. As the administrator with who they deal most often, the girls see as the primary face of that oppression being the dormitory matron, Mayumi Gojô. Most of the students want more humane conditions at the school, but the administrators are able to use whatever dissent that emerges from the students against them, in dividing and conquering based partly on lies and partly on different motivations of the students. The stories of two of those very different students are told in their fight for a better life at the school. One is Akiko Hayashino, largely seen by the students and the administrators as the chief agitator, some believing she being a card carrying Communist, any political thought which is contrary to policy. The daughter of a wealthy industrialist, she is given much leeway as her father is one of the school's chief benefactors, and as she holds damaging information about some at the school in her privileged state. Two is working class Yoshie Izushi, whose father is trying to arrange her marriage to a prominent businessman, whereas she truly wants to learn - she having difficulties catching up after being away for three terms needing to work - and eventually marry her poor activist boyfriend, Sankichi Shimoda, with who her father won't even allow her to associate.

Alternating in time, between the end of World War II and 1953, Haruko, a widow, does what she can to keep her daughter Utako and son Seiichi safe, fed, and sheltered. By 1953, it's clear that the children, as they enter adulthood, want little to do with their mother. They have a different view of their childhood and her sacrifices: in their eyes, she abandoned them to live a life of pleasure. The self-pitying Haruko is sure her life was one of pain and humiliation, for her children. As Seiichi, now a medical student, announces his plans to let a wealthy man adopt him, and as Utako considers the offer to go away with a married man who is her English teacher, what is left for Haruko?

The picture belongs to the jidai gekki (historic) genre. It is a powerful story of violence and eroticism, picturing a world at once sordid and poetic, with two central themes which intermingle to compound an admirable panel of a critical period in Japanese history: the great famine in the mid 19th Century.
