The 55th NHK Asadora Drama is Futarikko. Born over a tofu shop in Osaka, twin sisters Reiko and Kyoko have very different characters. Reiko is diligent, and longs for a secure, middle class lifestyle. Kyoko is a free spirit, who seeks thrills and adventure. We follow them on a roller coaster story of love, marriage, birth, triumph and disaster. This drama is compelling both for its human interest and for the way it charts the tumult of modern Japan.

Production Credits[edit]


  • Futarikko followed what is known today as the low point of the asadora, when Hashiran ka! dipped down at 20.5. Many critics credit Futarikko for pulling the asadora out of the low ratings trend, as the ratings soared back to near-30. In Osaka, where the series took place, the series averaged 37.4.
