Thanks a lot.

Good night.

Mr. Mita, have you found

your inn?

Not yet.

You ask too much,

that's why you don't find it, isn't it?

He is in no position

to ask for much.

He has been transferred from

Tokyo headquarters to Osaka.

They got rid of him.

- Impossible, Mr Mita!

- Yes, he's right.


Mita is too good a man.

It's a problem if you don't have

a place to sleep.

The inns where I have stayed

so far...

...have been raising

the monthly rent.

I had to pay

when I wasn't there, too.

I can't afford this

with my salary.

Nowadays, many inns

are used as brothels.

Isn't there any

good and cheap place?

He is someone important and

hasn't had any lodging for a long time.

Innkeepers have done nothing lately

but make things difficult.

Hey, captain!

There is a cheap and

very comfortable one.

Its name is "Suigetsu",

in Tosabori.

It's a special inn.

It's been open for many years.

It is cheap, it is stylish...

...and the inkeeper is kind.

The maids are also kind and attractive.

It's paradise.

Is there any discount

if you stay the whole month?

Of course.

Come and you'll see

that I am not lying.

"Suigetsu", Tosabori.


Captain, one... one...

Thank you.


Captain, "Suigetsu", Tosabori!

What is that guy saying?

"Suigetsu" in Tosabori?

I wonder if it's true.





Shouldn't you have woken up the

guest in number five at 7 am?

Oh, I didn't remember.

It's the one who came last night.

We must wake him up.

Thanks for everything.

You are welcome.

We hope you will return.

- Excuse me.

- Go ahead.

Have you already woken up?

- And you have folded your futon. Excuse me.

- It doesn't matter.

How correct and organized

you are.

I am a normal worker.

I can't get up late.

What a good place.

- What good luck.

- You can see the castle from there, can't you?

A telegram!

A telegram?

For Mr Noro, room 1.

Are you worried about anything?

No, I'm not.

My mother in Tokyo

is in a delicate state of health.

Yo must be worried.

Gee, it's very early.

Sorry for last night.


So you belong to this place.

I help with some stuff.

- Are you from Tokyo?

- Yes, I am.

Are you from Kanda?

Do you eat sushi?

I like Tokyo people very much.

There isn't a razor, is there?

Shoe shine, soap...

This is very good for shaving.

Buy me one...

Don't you need a piece of cloth?

It's genuine.

My clothes are very old.

I don't mean that.

This cloth is at a very good price.

When I start thinking,

I get sad.

I earn little.

Buy this, buy this.

Look, it suits everything.

- It's a good purchase.

- You, listen.

What are you doing?

- What is this?

- It's mine.

- Are you selling?

- Things of mine.

- I leave you some warm water.

- Thanks.

Ask me everything you need.

"It's essential for business that the customer

likes the inn", my husband always said.

We're different, we dont care so much

about money as all others.

Don't interfere.

Excuse me.

- Do your work!

- Yes.

She's so bossy.

Gentleman, think it over.

It's a piece of fabric

from the shop around the corner.

He is sick and they need the money.

- He has sold it cheap to me.

- Ossan, how's business?

Don't interfere!

Do your work!

Room 6 is calling!

Somebody go there!

How many books!

Yesterday we tried to guess...

...if you are a school teacher.

- Where do you work?

- Fuji Insurance Company.

That's right.

What an original watch!

A keepsake from my grandfather,

who died.

From when he travelled to France.

What's the matter with it?

It is an alarm clock.

How frightening, this

French watch!

Do you want me to send your mail?

Don't worry. I will go myself.

You must miss your wife.

She hasn't come with you

from Tokyo.

This letter is for my mother.


That's right.

Although I don't look like it,

I had a quarrel with

the director in Tokyo.

My mother worried a lot.

Besides, she is ill.

Should something happen to her,

I would be responsible.

I have been worrying her

since I was a child.

How well you speak

the Osaka dialect.

If I had a wife, she

wouldn't have a very good time.

Are you single?

Who was the old man

in the bathroom?

Ah, Ossan...

He is the innkeeper's brother.

Her brother?

Even if he is the older one,

it is her who pays him.

Even though he doesn't look like it,

he is a womanizer.

He knows how to advertise things.

What do you mean?

He is useful to this inn.

How absurd.

This guy...

Excuse me.

Stop fooling around.

Oyone has known men

since she was fourteen.

She is a very modern girl.

- Are you from Osaka?

- No, not at all.

I am from Ichigo.

- A village lost in the mountains.

- Thanks.

Being from Ichigo and all, you speak

the Osaka dialect very well.

As the saying goes:

"When in Rome, do as the Romans."

"How's business?"
