Wasao 的意思是「毛茸茸」。在日本青森縣的西海岸，充滿愛心的節子 (藥師丸博子 飾) 和丈夫在海邊經營一間小小的烤魷魚店，閒時以照顧流浪狗為樂，生活過得優哉悠哉。某日，節子發現了一隻擁有蓬鬆白毛如小獅子般的流浪狗，長相憨呆卻讓人打從心底喜愛，節子因為牠長得毛茸茸，為牠起名為Wasao；但Wasao總是悄悄出現，又默默消失，教節子摸不著頭腦。
A heart-warming story of the “busakawa-ken” (means “ugly but cute dog”) Wasao, as furry as a lion’s mane, and the people around him in the northern land of Aomori.
The Shirakami Mountain Range of the Tohoku region drew much attention as the area where Mononoke Hime (Princess Mononoke) directed by Hayao Miyazaki was set in. Within its northernmost reach lies Ajigasawa, Aomori Prefecture. This fishermen’s town is known for the most beautiful sunset in Japan, and is the home to a dog which has made himself a name with his adorable appearance… His name is “Wasao.” Unlike a typical Akita Inu breed, this three-year-old male dog with a unique face is covered in a thick layer of white fur, giving him a look of a lion.
Wasao instantaneously became an idol of Japan as people wrote about his distinct presence and charms in their blogs. He has become the new craze, being featured in over 30 magazines and making appearances in over 50 TV programs across Japan. The number of tourists driving over to see Wasao on weekends and holidays has reached 2,000 per day, even causing traffic congestion!
And now, Wasao will make a screen debut! Wasao will be playing himself in this film which tells the sentimental yet heart-warming story of his past that has never been told before.The lead role Setsuko, the owner of the main character Wasao, will be played by Hiroko Yakushimaru (“A Good Husband” “Always – Sunset on the Third Street”), the all-time glorious, legendary film actress of Japan.
The affection and bond between the people around Wasao will be depicted by Director Yoshinari Nishikori, who touched the hearts of the audience with an invigorating feel in his film RAILWAYS in 2010. The entire film was shot in Ajigasawa, Aomori Prefecture, known for the most beautiful sunset in Japan. An ultimate family film of a heart-warming, tear-jerking story told in the astonishingly beautiful nature!
