Love this show!
21 December 2017 | by gherman-3See all my reviews

Matsuya Onoe is terrific as the book salesman/dessert blogger. Beautiful photography makes every dessert look fantastic. Also like the subplot of the office politics.. his manic boss is a hoot as well. And Tokyo looks great in every shot.
