Many of you may say that you often watch Japanese dramas.
Japan is known for anime, but dramas are just as good!

ラストシンデレラ(Last Cinderella)

The main character is a 39-year-old woman who is too busy working to fall in love at all.

One day, she meets a super handsome guy who is much younger than her and falls in love. This is the story begin.

The story is full of titillating scenes that really make your heart pound!

But it’s not only romance, it’s also a drama that makes you think about the various backstories and problems that everyone has.

The best part is that Haruma Miura, the handsomer guy, is so cool! It’s worth watching for that alone.

『大恋愛~僕を忘れる君と~』(Great Love)

Another romantic drama.

When it comes to dramas that make you cry in Japan, this is definitely one of the most popular.

The story is about a woman who has juvenile Alzheimer’s disease and the man who supports her.

Although it is a sad story, it is portrayed in a very comical way and can be watched with a happy feeling.

The strong love between the two people who are not defeated by the disease brings tears to my eyes.


I cried too much with this drama…

半沢直樹(Hanzawa Naoki)

This movie was a big hit in Japan and became a hit not only in Japan but also in Asia.

The Japanese in the drama is a little difficult, but I think you can learn some business Japanese!

The story is about the main character’s fight against the darkness of the company, and it really motivates you to work harder.

The actors are all great Japanese actors, and their performances are really impressive.

You can also learn about Japanese society in this drama, so give it a watch!

 オレンジデイズ(Orange Days)

The theme of this drama is the friendship between men and women in college.

Of course there is romance too!

The main character is a deaf girl, but she is popular because she is beautiful and plays the violin very well.

The story is about the college life of the girl and her friends.

I personally love this drama and have rewatched it so many times!
I like the part where everyone practices and starts to speak in sign language.

It’s really good, with all these unique characters!


The last one is a medical drama.

Medical dramas are popular in Japan and there are many masterpieces, but this one is one of the most popular.

This is an unusual drama with obstetrics and gynecology as its theme, so there are many scenes of babies being born.

Anyway, it’s a much talked about drama that makes you cry, so tissues are a must when you watch it!

These are just a few examples of dramas from various genres.
