A film by Yuya Ishii

Based on the true story of the Pre-WWII Vancouver Asahi Baseball team. In the early 1900s, Japanese who immigrated to Canada were greeted by the harsh reality of grueling labour, discrimination, and poverty. However, the fighting spirit demonstrated by the Japanese-Canadian baseball team brought a ray of hope to people’s lives.(2014, 132 min., in Japanese and English with English subtitles)

Uncle Tetsu’s, The Popular Japan-Based Bakery,
To Open an Ottawa Location

Uncle Tetsu Japanese Cheesecake (Uncle Tetsu’s Website)

Uncle Tetsu’s (http://uncletetsu-ca.com/), the popular Japanese bakery, is headed to Elgin Street.

Established in Japan more than two decades ago, Uncle Tetsu’s Japanese Cheesecake opened in 2015 in Toronto and developed a cult following that was willing to line up for hours for its light, fluffy flagshop product. The Uncle Tetsu Canada business has grown to open eight locations in the Greater Toronto Area, one in Vancouver and one in Montreal.

In addition to the company’s melt-in-your-mouth signature item in original and matcha (green tea) flavours, various Uncle Tetsu shops also sell cheese tarts, madeleines and twice-cooked cheesecake biscuits.

The arrival of Uncle Tetsu’s in Ottawa, which will be a franchise shop, yields a fitting tenant to take over the space that was Boko Bakery, a beloved Japanese bakery. Boko closed last October after 36 years in business.

There are Uncle Tetsu shops in China, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and California. The company plans to open in Europe, South America, and South Asia, its website says.

The opening date for the Elgin Street location has not yet been decided, Uncle Tetsu Canada said in a statement.
