Only Yesterday synopsis

Taeko Okajima is a 27-year-old independent woman who has lived her entire life in Tokyo. Wanting to relax after the hustle of the big city, she decides to visit her family in the countryside to help with the crop.

On the train there, Taeko vividly recalls her memories as a schoolgirl in the early stages of puberty, as if she were going on a trip with her own childhood. A young farmer named Toshio comes to pick her up at the station, and they quickly form a friendship. During her time here, Taeko forms strong bonds with family and friends, learning the contrasts between city and country life, as well as the difficulties and joys of farming.

Nostalgic and bittersweet, Omoide Poroporo takes on Taeko's journey as an adult woman facing childhood dreams versus the person she is today.

Only Yesterday more review

Omoide Poroporo, otherwise known as Only Yesterday, is one of the most underrated movies to have ever come out of Studio Ghibli’s discography. It is easily the best made movie in Ghibli’s history when it comes to the visual presentation, and Takahata here showcased how he was a master of both color and visuals. Omoide Poroporo was a movie that was made to be targeted towards women upon it’s release, but due to Isao Takahata’s brilliant directing, the movie managed to become a success around men and women alike.
