We are excited to announce the first meeting of the new JSB Film Club! 

Our first film will be Tampopo (1985) directed by Juzo Itami. In this humorous homage to the joys of food, a pair of truck drivers happen upon a decrepit roadside shop selling ramen noodles. The widowed owner, Tampopo, begs them to help her turn her establishment into a paragon of the "art of noodle-soup making."

Watch the Trailer

Films should be viewed in advance of our meetings. Due to copyright laws, meetings will not feature screenings. This film can be viewed for free if you have a subscription to Max or the Criterion Channel. You can also rent from the Boston Public Library or purchase the DVD online at various sites.  

We will update this page with optional, supplementary resources to the film. 

The Japan Society of Boston Film Club meets on the last Wednesday of every other month to discuss great classic and contemporary Japanese films. The purpose of our club is to support the  community of Japan enthusiasts in the New England region by creating a space for thoughtful and sociable discussion.

If you have any suggestions for future films for the club, please send them to us through email to
