KOSHIKAWA CLI NIC

I'm Noboru Yasumoto.

Yasumoto?

I know. I'll take him.

I'm Genzo Tsugawa.

I've been waiting for you.

With you here, I can leave.

You're taking my place.

I was just told to call.

You were in Nagasaki?

For how long?

Just over three years.

It's terrible here.

You'll have to stay

and see for yourself.

The patients are slum people,

full of fleas and lice.

They even smell bad.

We don't get much money.

And Red Beard is after us

night and day.

Red Beard?

The head doctor.

His beard is sort of reddish.

It's really terrible here.

Being here makes you wonder

why you wanted to be a doctor.

It smells like rotten fruit.

It's the smell of the poor.

The waiting room for outpatients.

They're treated for free

in the afternoons.

I don't know.

All of them would be

better off dead.

This way.

The pharmacy.

The clinic.

The men's wards.

Over there, the women's wards.

Is there no tatami?

No. Our rooms are all the same.

Same as a prison.

Yes, even our clothes are like this.

It's all right for us men.

But even poor women are women.

They should wear

something brighter.

I'd hate to die in this.

These clothes...

They show dirt.

They're easy to wash.

So, you see,

we can always stay clean.

You smelled

when you came here,

but it's not so bad now.

You owe it all to your clothes.

See?

You shouldn't talk.

Red Beard said so, didn't he?

If you don't mind him,

you'll spit up blood again.

We're better off dead.

Too poor to even buy medicine!

But when I die,

I'd like to die on tatami!

Even the poorest have tatami.

It's bad for us.

You see,

tatami catches

all the dirt and moisture.

That's why...

Sahachi,

if you don't keep quiet,

you'll really die.

Are these things the rule here?

Red Beard's rules.

He's the dictator here.

A good doctor,

dedicated to his work.

Many daimyo and rich people

trust him.

But he's stubborn,

inconsiderate, radical,

and proud.

Beyond here are our quarters.

The south side gets the sun.

That's for the patients.

The damp north side is for us.

The patients' service room.

The kitchen.

We eat here.

It's called the dining room.

We must not eat or drink

in our rooms.

They're all Red Beard's rules.

We are to have no heat

except in the wards.

Red Beard says the cold here

is good for us.

And there's not enough money

to buy coal except for the wards.

Red Beard's room.

I brought Dr. Yasumoto!

Come in.

I'm Noboru Yasumoto.

Red Beard.

My real name's

hard to pronounce...

Kyojo Niide.

You'll start as an intern today.

But l...

Wait. Father only said

to call on you.

You'll stay here.

Bring me all the notes and drawings

you made at Nagasaki.

They are at home.

I'll go back and...

No, your things will be here soon.

That's all.

Show him his room.

I'm Handayu Mori.

It's pretty difficult here.

But if you want,

you can learn a lot.

Useful in the future.

Let's work together.

I won't be cooped up here!

I studied to serve the shogunate!

I was to be the shogun's doctor!

And it's...

Please listen!

My father's a doctor.

Dr. Amano's his friend.

He's the shogun's personal doctor?

Yes, he helped me

to go study in Nagasaki.

He said he'd recommend me.

Then why did this happen?

I don't know.

I just don't understand.

It's...

A mix-up somewhere.
