Best TV Shows to Watch on Rakuten Viki: Under the Miracle Cherry Tree

Under the Miracle Cherry Tree is a Japanese drama on Rakuten Viki. It is about a boy who was killed but comes back to life seven years later.

The main characters are Mei (Iitoyo Marie) and Kota (Sano Hayato), and they were best friends before Kota was tragically killed. Since then, Mei has been struggling to move on, and she moved from her hometown to Tokyo to try and escape her past memories. Since she moved away though, she lost touch with all of their friends, and her life has never been the same. This all changes when Kota comes back to life.

There are only 8 episodes in the series, and each episode is only 35 minutes or so. However, I thought that the storyline in this one was deeper than other dramas I have watched, and it had more meaning and emotional scenes. Although there were some sad parts, I thought the drama was generally uplifting and reflective of how life really is.

Originally, I had no clue what Under the Miracle Cherry Tree was going to be about from the title; however, like most other Japanese dramas, it was worth watching and pleasantly surprising!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
