In Saint Elmo’s High School, there used to be a tradition of performing “shiro-fun nagashi” at the school festival every year. But as the time goes by, people forget about this tradition. One day, a transfer student, Tomonaga Ichirouta (played by Shirasu Jin), was invited to join Fundoshi Club. The members of this club try to revive the tradition but they face various problems.


  • This drama is adapted from a stage play of the same name.
  • Fundoshi is an old Japanese men’s underwear made of a long, narrow cloth which is rolled around the loin. (shiro-fundoshi = white fundoshi)
