Acclaimed director of Summer of Chirusoku, Half a Confession and Yunagi City, Sakura Country Kiyoshi Sasabe casts Rin Takanashi and Takumi Saitoh as members of the farming industry. The Sowing Traveller 3 tells a universal story of the cherished act of growing fruit. Ayane is conflicted about coming back home because she feels it’s a setback. Filming took place in Akaiwa, Okayama prefecture, a peach growing area with lots of sun and fertile soil. Along with the harmony of daily life that the local people have with nature, an important feature of the film is its beautiful landscapes.
Director Kiyoshi Sasabe

After graduating from Meiji University School of Arts and Letters and Japan Institute of the Moving Image, Sasabe worked as a freelance assistant director. In 2002, he made his directorial debut with Hi wa Mata Noboru. He received the Directors Guild of Japan New Directors Award for Summer of Chirusoku in 2003.
