Teppan (てっぱん?) is a Japanese television drama that aired on NHK in 2010–2011. It was the 83rd Asadora. It starred a new actress, Miori Takimoto,[1] in the role of a young woman raised by an adopted family in Onomichi who learns of her real grandmother and decides to move to Osaka to start an okonomiyaki restaurant.[2] The title word "teppan" refers to the metal surface on which okonomiyaki are cooked. The series, while interrupted by the Tohoku earthquake, averaged a 17.2% rating (in the Kanto region), making it the fourth most popular of the Asadora dramas in the previous five years.[3]
