Hello. Hot day, eh?

Good morning

Terribly hot, isn't it?

What are they going to show next?

Look. Kabuki plays

Sword fighting plays?

I liked that strip show last month

Remember that plump girl in pink?

The new show isn't like that

It's a grand kabuki show

Really?

This troupe is coming all the way...

...via Okazaki, Kariya

and Cape Chita

Really?

Give me a free pass as usual,

will you?

I remember I saw this troupe

years ago, during the war

It was at Yamada Town

I saw this Komajuro

How was it?

He played very well, too

He played Chuya Marubashi

"A pint here and a quart there

"Quite a lot that I'm aware"

Really?

Will the boat be late again?

Not that I've heard.

She'll come on the dot

Once in a blue moon, eh?

Indeed

It's going to be very hot today

- It's overdue, eh?

- No, not much...

Master

Darling

At last?

Kayo, you take care of that

Don't bother

Was it yours, Sugiyama?

Don't leave anything

Ready, Roku?

Yes

- You too?

- Sorry?

Don't forget anything

Don't forget me. dean

Till from me you hear

Hello there

I'll come tonight

I'll be expecting you

Master, your wife is here

Good business, eh?

Can I have a match?

What's your name?

Afternoon

I'll be expecting you

Let's go together, Okatsu

Who'll take care of the customers?

Do come tonight

- Goodbye

- Goodbye

I'll be seeing you

I'm sure he has an open hand

He's an Osaka actor, then?

And an old-timer around here

He once played in our town, too

They say he used to play

at the big Kado Za in Osaka

Is that so?

That means...

Don't move or you'll get cut

My gosh.

Don't you cut me, Aiko

Hello

Hey, go away

- Please

- Thank you

What a hot day

It's terrible

Is it your daughter?

Very pretty

Hello.

Are you helping your dad?

Great of you. Admirable

You can rest assured, eh?

Aiko Ogawa?

Cute name

Listen, Aiko

Are you the only child?

The apple of his eye?

Great help to your dad

Will you marry a barber, too?

Marry someone who's good-looking.

A man like me

Good and kind

What a cute little thing you are!

Very lovely

Give me a cup of tea

Certainly

- We're back

You must be tired

We're back

- Hello.

Hey...

Why?

- Oh, welcome

Good afternoon, sir

- I brought this for you

The owner's here, Master

Come right in

Thanks for earlier, sir.

Please sit down

Please

It's been a long time

Yes. It feels great

to be back here again

When was the last time?

Was it immediately

It's already twelve years since then

That many years?
