The theme of the second film directed by Juzo Itami is food.
Truck drivers Goro and Gan stop at a deserted ramen shop run by a single mother named Tanpopo. Goro and Gan point out the problems with the ramen, and Tanpopo begs the men to teach her how to become the best ramen shop in town. This masterpiece triggered the Japanese ramen boom. It was a big hit in the United States as well.
