commentary: やじきた (Yajikita)

Hiroi Michiaki: This is called “Yajikita”… there’s an interesting story from long ago called “Yajikita on the Road.” It’s about these two people, like a short story now. Mm. And Yaji and Kita are walking along the Tokaido road. There’s all kinds of interesting stories about their journey, and here I’m showing one of them. If you do this, they stagger about and spin. Mm. It’s just like they’re traveling and having fun and like they’re walking about.
