The story line of "Always Sunset on Third Street"

The plot takes place in a small community in post-war Tokyo, and follows some of the residents over one year as Tokyo Tower is being built.

Norifumi Suzuki runs a small auto repair shop, where he lives with his wife and son. A young girl from Aomori prefecture, comes to live with them and work as Suzuki's apprentice. Rynosuke Chagawa lives across the street and runs a small shop out of his house. He writes serial novels called "Shnen Bken-dan" ("The Young Boys Adventure Club").
Despite the difficulties in the characters' lives, the film has many light-hearted moments; a nostalgia for post-war Japanese "good old days".
