Reggae-ji, Murata Masaru by own name, is an old retired trumpetist who was member of “Septeto” music band, 30 years ago.
He cannot play trumpet any more since he has no teeth any more. Ones being successful man, who even inherited a motel, he used to threw money everywhere. Nothing remained from that time.
Today he rent only small two room house, full of cloth from time of his success, hanged around all walls of his rooms. He does not use them any more so they are covered by layers of dust. Even in the middle of each room there is a mountain of cloth. He does not mind and use them as a mat.
Reggae-ji became by time a man who eats instant ramens in convenient stores located neirby to save a bit and visit live houses of Ishinomaki every night. Everybody knows him so he can get in for free and also get many things for free….
People liked him and he like to be among them.
