A Distant Neighborhood (Japanese: 遥かな町へ, Hepburn: Harukana Machi e) is a Japanese manga by Jiro Taniguchi. It was adapted into a live-action French film in 2010.[1][2]


Middle-aged salaryman Hiroshi Nakahara accidentally takes a train ride back to his old hometown to visit his mother's grave. Then for reasons he can't explain, Hiroshi is transported back in time, and discovers that he's an 8th grader again, but with all of his adult memories intact.
