Tokyo Story (1953) Poster


Haruko Sugimura: Shige Kaneko



  • Kurazo Kaneko : [returning from shopping]  I brought some cakes for them.

    [to Shige] 

    Kurazo Kaneko : Have one. They're good.

    Shige Kaneko : [taking a cake]  They don't need such expensive cakes.

    Kurazo Kaneko : [eating a cake]  Good, eh?

    Shige Kaneko : [eating a cake]  Good, but too expensive. Crackers would have been good enough for them.

    Kurazo Kaneko : But they had crackers yesterday.

  • Shige Kaneko : [at dinner table following Tomi's funeral]  Kyoko, did mother still have her summer sash? I'd like it for a keepsake. Is that alright with you? And that linen kimono she used to wear in summer? I want that too. You know where it is? Can you get it out?

  • Shige Kaneko : [Tomi and Shukichi enter the hair salon]  Why, you're back so soon. You should have stayed longer!

    Tomi Hirayama : [as she passes Shige teasing a customer's hair]  We're home.

    Hair salon customer : Who are they?

    Shige Kaneko : Oh, just friends from the country.

    [looks after Tomi and Shukichi with disdain] 

  • Shige Kaneko : Mama, you've grown taller.

    Tomi Hirayama : Don't be silly. How could I have grown?

    Shige Kaneko : But you have, and you're even fatter.

    [turns to Noriko] 

    Shige Kaneko : She was so big when I was little that I used to feel ashamed in front of my friends. Once in school, a chair broke under her.

    Tomi Hirayama : Oh, that chair was already broken.

    Shige Kaneko : She still thinks that.

  • Tomi Hirayama : [saying good-bye at the train station]  You were so nice to us, children. Now that we've seen you all, you need not come down, even if anything should happen to either one of us.

    Shige Kaneko : Don't talk like that. This isn't a farewell.

    Tomi Hirayama : I mean it. We live too far away.

  • Kurazo Kaneko : We can't leave them there all night.

    Shige Kaneko : It can't be helped, can it?

    Kurazo Kaneko : Let's have Kiyo come down and we'll put them upstairs.

    Shige Kaneko : They're too drunk to make it.

    Kurazo Kaneko : What will we do, then?

    [Shige scoffs] 

    Shige Kaneko : What a mess.

    [She gets to her feet] 

    Shige Kaneko : You sleep upstairs. I'll put them here.

    [She starts laying out bedrolls] 

    Shige Kaneko : What a bother. Why didn't he tell me he was coming back? So late and so drunk! I hate drunkards. With a stranger, too. Oh, this is disturbing.
