1983, 105 min., 35mm, color. With Kiyoshi Atsumi, Chieko Baisho and Keiko Takeshita.

When Tora-san stops into the town of Okayama to pay respects to his brother-in-law’s late father’s grave, he is taken in by the temple’s priest. When he falls in love with Tomoko, the priest’s charming daughter, he dons a robe and begins chanting sutras to win over her heart- and realizes he might just be cut out for the pious life despite his family’s doubts.
