The 36th NHK Asadora drama is Hanekonma. Locations include Fukushima Prefecture and Miyagi Prefecture.

Based on the life of Isomura Haruko (1877-1918), a pioneer female newspaper reporter during the Meiji and Taisho eras.

Tachibana Rin, nicknamed Hanekonma (=tomboy in Fukushima dialect), grew up in Soma, Fukushima. Rin and her mother Yae worked hard to earn money in order for Rin to enter a prestigious all-women's school in Sendai, Miyagi, where she goes to study the English language and learn about the wide world. After marriage, Rin moves to Tokyo with her husband and family where she eventually joins a newspaper company, and becomes one of Japan's first female newspaper reporters.
