Finding your passion in the most unexpected of places

Noriko and Michiko are cousins in their last year of university, trying to find their place in the world of adult life. Michiko is adventurous and graceful while Noriko is clumsy and slow to catch on—so when Michiko wants to begin tea ceremony lessons Noriko is understandably nervous. While their first lesson is difficult and their teacher Mrs Takeda is rigid, something about the intricate fine details in the practice are fascinating to Noriko, so the cousins decide to continue learning. The lessons are only ever a hobby for Michiko, but Noriko develops a passion for the practice and a deep connection to her teacher. Through the changing seasons of Noriko’s life, the ritual of tea ceremony becomes a safe place to meditate on the ups and downs of life.

Based on essayist Noriko Morishita’s book of the same name and directed by Omori Tatsushi of The Ravine of Goodbye and starring Kuroki Haru of The Little House with co-star Kiki Kilin of Shoplifters; Every Day a Good Day is an elegant and moving tale that not only brings the world of tea ceremony to life but teaches the audience to connect deeply with both themselves and the natural world around them.
