From Up On Poppy Hill Subtitled says
Set in 1963 Yokohama, Japan, the film tells the story of Umi Matsuzaki, a high school girl living in a boarding house, Coquelicot Manor. When Umi meets Shun Kazama, a member of the school's newspaper club, they decide to clean up the school's clubhouse, Quartier Latin. However, Tokumaru, the chairman of the local high school and a businessman, intends to demolish the building for redevelopment and Umi and Shun, along with Shirō Mizunuma, must persuade him to reconsider.

A sweet and tender collaboration between Goro Miyazaki (director) and his legendary father Hayao (one of the screenwriters), From Up on Poppy Hill stands apart from the family’s filmography in its emphasis on realism. Yet the historical setting and human characters hardly preclude the usual sense of Miyazaki wonder. - Josh Larsen
