WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!
A journey of true love — this is a tale of traffic between "this world" and "that world". It is based on stage productions of rakugo stories (Japanese comical tales) that depict the world after death, such as "Jigoku Bassei Mouja no Tawamure", "Asatomo", "Shinu Nara, Ima", etc. Star Troupe, whose members are overflowing with personality, will bring you a rakugo musical that will make you laugh until you burst!
Yasujirou is the young heir to Kondaya, a money changing business in Osaka. One day, he wakes up to find himself in another world, in a flower garden in the purgatory between this life and the next. Realizing he is dead, he still harbors the love at first sight he felt upon espying a young woman whom he happened upon at Kozu Shrine, but whose identity is unknown to him. Although Yasujirou realized she, too, felt something for him, he could not get over his simple naivete to call out to her. In the end, his yearning was so great that he could not express it. Eventually, Yasujirou learned that the girl is named O-Sumi and she works at Shogetsudo, an Osaka confectionary shop. But he is too late. O-Sumi also felt a love for Yasujirou too great for her to articulate, and she passes away a love-sick woman. Upon learning of her death, Yasujirou's woe over this sad event is overwhelmed by the realization that O-Sumi, too, has not come to the other world. On his journey to find her, he encounters numerous friends. Tokusaburou is the young owner of Kotobukiya, the biggest rice dealer in Edo. Kiroku is an assistant to Tokusaburou, as well as to Kondaya, the money changing business. Binbogami, the God of Poverty, constantly dreams of becoming the God of Fortune. Gradually, the journey through the other world becomes a lively affair. Come see how Yasujirou and O-Sumi finally find the path to each other's love.
