A full version of short animation “Passage of time TOKYO STATION”
This animation was created by A-1 Pictures, and the main theme song was written by Yu Sakai.
The story takes place at Tokyo Station which is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
Misaki, a twenty-nine year old woman, is planning to get married soon.
One day, she finds an old pocket watch which belonged to her late father. Unfortunately, it was broken and did not move.
Misaki finds out that this watch originally belonged to her grandfather. It was her grandfather who gave it to her father. They both worked at the Tokyo Station.
Misaki’s father was always strict and severe, especially to her. That was the only memory she would remember about him. She regrets how they could not connect with each other because she could not communicate with him very well when she was in her teens.
Misaki visits the Tokyo station, hoping to repair this memorable watch. However, the repair shop was already gone.
She drops her shoulders and walks on the platform of the station. Suddenly, she finds a station employee who looks just like her father.
She runs and follows this person without even thinking…
