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-Belgian 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 cannot explain, Hiroshi is transported over 30 years into the past, reacquainting himself with the family he has since lost and the individual memories he has since forgotten.
