8. Suits

Suits is a remake of the original American TV series and it is as good, if not to say better. This 2018 TV series tells the story of skilled lawyer Shogo Kai from one of Japan’s biggest law firms. Shogo prioritizes winning more than anything else. And another character is extremely intelligent young man Daiki Suzuki who has suffered hardships in his past. Shogo hires Daiki as an associate since he is impressed by Daiki’s remarkable memory recall. They later together form an unstoppable team.

9. Mare

This 2015 Japanese drama is a heartwarming story that can lift your spirit. Mare tells a story about a girl of the same name who grew up in a family that is constantly running from debt. They settle in a small village town called Noto where she rebuilds her life. Growing up, Mare chases after her dream of being a patissier since her childhood. The drama follows Mare’s journey from childhood to adulthood, focusing on her struggle to become a world-class patissier – with a little romance for extra spice.

There are hundreds of Japanese dramas in every genre, from action-packed storylines to heartfelt romance. In addition, the drama will also teach you a thing or two about Japan without having to leave the comfort of your own home. For instance, while Todome No Kiss introduces the host culture of Japan, Mare gives an insight to the pastry scene in the country.

10. Kinou Nani Tabeta? (What Did You Eat Yesterday?)

Kinou Nani Tabeta? is not anordinary Japanese drama.

Shiro is assigned to keep the food budget to 25,000 yen each month and make dinner usually with rice, soup, and three different dishes. Dinner is particularly important for this couple. It is the time when they talk about almost everything. Yabuki is pretty open about his relationship with Shiro but it’s not the case of Shiro.
