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.

Notes:

  • 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)
