Tokyo Story (1953) Poster


Eijirô Tôno: Sanpei Numata


  • Sanpei Numata : I often wish at least one of my sons were alive.

    Osamu Hattori : Must have been hard to lose both of them.

    [to Shukichi] 

    Osamu Hattori : Didn't you lose one?

    Shukichi Hirayama : Yes, my second son.

    Osamu Hattori : I've had enough of war.

    Shukichi Hirayama : Yes, indeed. To lose your children is hard, but living with them isn't always easy either. A real dilemma.

  • Sanpei Numata : I'm afraid we expect too much of our children. They lack spirit. They lack ambition. I've told that to my son. He said that there are too many people in Tokyo. That it's hard to get ahead. What do you think? Young people today have no backbone. Where is there spirit? That's not how I raised him!
