The setting of both shows is in Okinawa. The main female leads have a lot in common too - both are hair stylists and pregnant. The director in Senkotsu (Gori) is also an actor and made an appearance in Tsurukame Josanin, which might explain where he got such inspiration for the movie.

Both are adapted from novels written by the same author. The same cadence and sentimental (but hopeful) tone too.
