Tenugui 13 - Shinban Kozarushichinosuke
From the rakugo story of Kozaru Shichinosuke:
A roofed boat that picks up customers at the Inari River in Teppozu returns to Asakusa. A geisha boarded the ship despite there being a law against “a single boatman, a single geisha”.

On the way, Shichinosuke helped Kokichi of Kashimaya, a liquor wholesaler, who threw himself off the Eitai bridge, but Shichinosuke turned around and pushed Kokichi into the Okawa River again. In the darkness surrounding them, the pattering rain seems to hurt when it hits Shichinosuke’s cheeks. The persuasion of Otaki starts from there…
