Idaten Episode 4 Shōben Kozō (A Boy with Weakness)

In 1960, KOKONTEI Shincho tells his audience about the Olympics. In 1911, Kano Jigorō prepares for sending Japanese athletes to the Olympic Games in Stockholm and establishes Dai Nippon Taiiku Kyōkai. He hopes that there will be "Idaten" who can be successful in the Olympics. And Shisō takes part in the race held by Tōkyō Shihan Gakkō however he has a desire to urinate just before the start and has a wash. Dōmei Nagai finds it and scolds him not to do such a thing. He loses his way but runs the whole distance of 24 km and gets a bronze medal. Sei-san goes to a tabi (Japanese socks) and talks with the about the Olympics with the master (*).

Shisō is delighted that Jigorō whom he has admired since his childhood. He is the first preparatory course student who gets a bronze medal. He writes about it to his family but is disappointed with the reply written by his brother Sanetsugu for his mother Suē. It says that his purpose is not running. The letter also says that he should not run such a long distance. Shisō bathes in cold water and decides not to write to his family any more because his mother still regards him as a little and weak child. He then checks why he could not get a gold medal but Hidenobu Mikawa tells him that he himself is a stray sheep now.

Jigorō Kanō (Kōji Yakusho, right) speaks to Shisō (NAKAMURA Kankurō VI) who gets a bronze medal.

Hidenobu blames Dōmei that he always looks down on students and stubborn. Beside he likes inflicting corporal punishment. Then Shisō sees Sanpō Toku, a man who pracrices judo well and eats a lot. Shisō realises that it needs to eat something that wull increase his stamina to run a long distance. But Hidenobu is laughed at Sanpō so Dōmei tries to punish him. But it's not Domei but Sanpō who punishes him.

Shisō is promoted to regular course and joins the athletic club. He eats pork dish served in a pot with his juniors after running and overcomes his weaknesses such as having a desire to urinate before the race. At the restaurant, he sees a man in Western clothes and a Western woman. They are Hyozō Omori and his wife Aniko. Hyozō tells Shisō that he plans to visit the Shihan Gakkō soon. Shisō has another problem to be solved. He thinks waraji (straw sandal) is not fit for sports but there are no running shoes made in Japan. He visits a tabi shop called Hariymaya where Sei-san often stops by to buy his tabi. Shisō also buys a pair and makes them as his runnning shoes.

 Shiē Kanakuri (Yoshiko Miyazaki) worries about her son

In 1960.  Chiē, a girlfriend of Gorin who is a new pupil of Shinshō tells him that he now visits a tabi shop where his mother worked for. The shop is nothing but Harimaya.

In 1911, the qualifying for the Olympics is near. When Sei-san visits Harimaya, the master called Shinsaku says many students of the Shihan Gakkō bought tabi for it. There are four footrace events in the Olympics -100 metres, 200 metres, 400 meteres and marathon. As it needs to run more than 40 km in marathon, Shisō and his teammates change their training style and practice running without drinking water and fat. They also try to run wearing a lot of clothes to make themselves to sweat off. Yahiko Mishima who is to graduate from university soon asks his brother Yatarō to invest money in making a ground though he opposes to Yahiko's join in the Olympics.

Yatarō Mishima (Yukiyoshi Ozawa) treats his brother Yahiko coldly

Hyozō visits the Shihan Gakkō and leads the students who make a ground in Haneda. The students from China (Qing) who study in Japan by the good offices of Jigorō are included in them. But Yahiko tells Jigorō that he will not join the Olympics and he and Tengu Club members will manage the race. He also says to him that Yatarō will not invest money. It shocks Jigorō. Though the money to send the athletes to the Olympics is raised, he is in low spirits and says there may be no Idaten whom he is searching for. On the other hand, Shisō falls down because of his training and concludes that he should not train himself recklessly.  

Shinshō tells "Shibahama", a story about a man who loves drinking sake. However he is drunken also though he performs on the stage on the day. So his story digresses.

(*) A rikishaman like Sei-san usually put on a pair of tabi when he pulled a jinrikisha.

『西郷どん』復習の投稿をアップしている一方で、『青天を衝け』の感想も書いています。またBSで再放送中の『黄金の日日』の再放送も観ています。そしてパペットホームズの続編ですが、これは是非とも来年の大河が始まる前に、三谷氏にお願いしたいところです。

他にも国内外の文化や歴史、『相棒』をはじめとする刑事ドラマについても、時々思い出したように書いています。ラグビー関連も週1またはそれ以上でアップしています。2019年、日本でのワールドカップで代表は見事ベスト8に進出し、2021年には北半球最強であるブリティッシュ&アイリッシュ・ライオンズとの試合も組まれています。このチームにいい試合をし、今後さらに上を目指してほしいものです。国内のラグビーも、2022年からはいよいよ新リーグがスタートです。
