A samurai comedy about making the impossible happen!

In the middle of the Edo-period (18th century), Masatsu Naito is the daimyo (feudal lord) of a small and poor clan in northern Japan. One day, he is ordered by the Shogun to come to the capital city of Edo (modern day Tokyo) in five days.

The cost for such a journey was incredibly high and took about eight to twelve days to travel to Edo. Without the budget it seems impossible to arrive within five days. However, the Shogun’s order is a must or land will be taken away. Will he and his men be able to achieve this impossible task?

Starring Kuranosuke Sasaki, Kyoko Fukada, Tsuyoshi Ihara
