Join us to celebrate National Ramen Day with our screening of Come Back Anytime! This is the first film in our food-themed series, Cinema Umami. Stay tuned for further announcements.

Self-taught ramen master UEDA Masamoto and his wife Kazuko have run their Tokyo ramen shop, Bizentei for more than forty years. Together with their customers, they have created a welcoming place of community. On the weekends, they venture together across the Japanese countryside, harvesting pears, bamboo shoots, and wild mountain yams.

An intimate portrait of Japan’s culture of food, community, and work, Come Back Anytime features gorgeous scenery, mouth-watering dishes, and a delightful cast of regular customers. It’s a heartwarming reminder of life’s simplest pleasures: a delicious meal, relaxed conversations with friends, and a special place to call one’s own. 

Free admission. Register below.
