Come Back Anytime
Masamoto Ueda and his wife Kazuko have run popular Tokyo noodle bar Bizentei for over four decades. With its warm, comforting atmosphere and delicious soy-based broth, it’s no surprise Bizentei has attracted a dedicated fanbase of devoted customers, who keep coming back bowl after bowl. Shot over the course of one year, Come Back Anytime is not only a portrait of a noodle shop and its long-serving owners, but also a heart-warming dedication to the community that has sprung up around it.
