This is an earlier commercial in the Marukome instant miso soup series (see https://www.facebook.com/justbento.justhungry/posts/10153301733932454 ). In this version, Two little girls go to visit their father, who is working at a regional office away from his family*. They learn how to make his favorite homecooked dishes from their mom beforehand and do their best to cook for him. The results aren't that good, but he loves it anyway.

(It's pretty common still for a salaryman to be sent to a regional office or something on temporary assignment, and for the family to remain behind. This is called tanshin funin - 単身赴任. A tanshin funin is usually from a few months to a couple of years, but sometimes it can be longer. For the father to live apart from his family for such a long time might seem unthinkable in some societies, but it's often thought to be less disruptive to the kids and so on.)

makiwi: @matt_timmons it could have just been a chijimi with udon in it. It’s not a widely known traditional dish or anything.

makiwi: @matt_timmons I’m not sure what you mean by ジチミ -jichimi. Do you mean チヂミ - Korean pancakes?
