A musician who takes on odd jobs at banquets, picture shows, and the odd shrine festival. Broke off ties with his rather well-off family.
A former kagema (male prostitute) who used to work in a teahouse in Yushima. Everyone can’t help but adore him. Fondly nicknamed “Momo”.
In the latter half of the Bunsei Era, wandering musician Manji takes in former kagema Momo. In Manji’s fierce, passionate embrace, Momo finally understands how it feels like to be a lover on equal footing with his partner – and it feels just like a dream! With his heart by his side and the rest of their lives stretching out beyond them, will he ever get used to being this happy?
