The story is set in the late Edo period when the divorce rate was two times higher than the present. In feudal Japanese society, men could easily divorce their wives whereas wives had great difficulty exercising the same act. Many women found solace at a women’s Buddhist temple in Kamakura named Tokei-ji, where, after two years of servitude, their husbands were forced to sign divorce papers. The three inns located in the area beneath the temple functioned as the front offices, with Tokei-ji accepting only women who have been approved by them first. The year is 1841. Tokugawa Shogunate has issued sumptuary regulations as part of Tempo reforms, making the lives of common people even worse. Nakamura Shinjiro is a literary writer and doctor-in-training, residing in Edo. In light of the recent events, Shinjiro escaped to an inn at Tokei-ji temple which is run by his aunt, Kashiwaya Genbei. Jogo is aiming for Tokei-ji in search of a divorce from her abusive husband who is exploiting her for the family business. Ogin is a former courtesan who has abandoned the love of her life, a wealthy merchant, for some unknown reasons. The two women come across in their journey to Tokei-ji. There, Jogo and Ogin meet Shinjiro, his aunt and the others who are trying to help the women with various ideas to start a new life. (Source: Joe Shiren at MyDramaList) Edit Translation

This was brilliant - I loved every minute and there wasn't really a slow moment; to me it wasn't really a comedy, that lessens the story to say it was. There were comedic moments, but there was so, SO much more to it than that. This is a movie I KNOW I will watch over and over and still enjoy as much as the first time. I honestly can't praise this enough.

As a bit of a history buff I've spent the last hour looking up the history behind this wonderful film and the names I could find in history from it. It's been an education on so many levels and because of that alone, let alone all the other good points in it, I would give it 10/10.
