In Asakusa, where Beat Takeshi was in his early days, there were various legendary men!
What kind of people are the legendary men of Asakusa that Beat Takeshi saw? I want to hear such a legend about Asakusa~
I will answer such a question.
Beat Takeshi saw it! Asakusa’s legendary famous men such as Asakusa Tarzan [Asakusa Kid era]
Beat Takeshiko, one of Japan’s leading comedians, entertainers, and internationally active film directors, spent five years training in Asakusa…
Beat Takeshi witnessed people with a strong impact one after another.
This article introduces the legends of the legendary men that Takeshi saw and heard in Asakusa during his early days.
Legendary Men of Asakusa
Now let’s introduce the “Legendary Men of Asakusa” heard by Beat Takeshi!
First, the legendary man Part 1
Tarzan of Asakusa
Speaking of Tarzan, the “King of the Jungle” is characterized by the action of jumping from ivy to ivy.
However, what I saw in Asakusa 50 years ago in the neighborhood of Asakusa France Theater at that time was…
A man running while screaming while wearing only dirty pants, the rest of the body is naked… In his hand… is a rope that’s not connected anywhere!
Beat Takeshi said that he was interested and tried to talk to
Hey! If you’re hungry, would you like something to buy?
“Tarzan, I only eat bananas!”
why aren’t you dressed “It’s ugly, so shouldn’t I wear some clothes?” So does she do this aloha?
“Tarzan, don’t catch a cold!”
Tarzan: I don’t catch colds! …and left behind powerful words that rejected the makeshift sympathy!
It looks like it’s going to be cold in autumn, so I said, “I’ll give you Asakusa France’s clothes.”
Before Beat Takeshi came to Asakusa, he suddenly appeared around spring, but this winter he died of pneumonia behind Kannon.
Meriken no Sei (Sei-chan, the silver screen breaker)
There were people who loved the late Yujiro Ishihara and John Wayne.
The word “silver screen” is an old word for a movie screen. It was the movie theater that appeared as a man with a nickname there.
Sei-chan was a big fan of Yujiro Ishihara, a movie star who was a national hero at the time.
Such an outrageous movie scene for Sei-chan… Oh my God! It was a scene where Yujiro was in danger.
For Sei-chan, who is a huge fan of Yujiro, this is an unforgivable scene. He left his seat in the middle of the screening. And later…
Sei-chan appeared during the screening of the same movie again, and he had a sword in his hand. And as soon as Yujiro was about to be shot with a pistol, he jumped onto the stage and slashed the pistol-wielding opponent with a Japanese sword. I’m going to cut the screen.
“Yujiro, it’s dangerous!” The screen is blank!
However, at that moment, the screen changed and it is said that he cut Yujiro who was guarding himself on the screen. Sei-chan seems to have tried to apologize by stuffing her fingers.
Next is the legendary man Part 3
It is said that he got angry when department store clerks behaved badly and scattered poop from the 7th floor to the 2nd basement floor of the department store. Tied up and tied up. Thrown into the Sumida River.
Scary people said, “Don’t get carried away!”, “It seems you haven’t learned yet!”
Ju-chan was wrapped in mats and thrown into the Sumida River.
Ju-chan: We’re in a desperate situation. At that time, I thought that Ju-chan was a piece of debris from the Sumida River!
Unable to use her limbs, she twisted her body and swam off her back. She swam along the Sumida River and miraculously made it to the rental boat shop downstream.
And the next morning, the owner of a rental boat shop on the Sumida River found Ju-chan! She hung on to the rope and she endured it until morning.
When the owner of the rental boat shop asked, “What’s wrong?”
She said she drifted away with her suit and heard “Suke” on the other side of her.
Asakusa’s Astro Boy
Why does Astro Boy in Asakusa come walking around 10:00 am?
When Beat Takeshi is walking in the 6th district of Asakusa, passers-by run away shouting “Ah! It’s Atom!”
Takeshi asked, “Atom? Are you talking about Astro Boy?” I wondered what he was talking about, and there he was… Astro Boy’s head is smooth, but he has a 7-3 tattoo reminiscent of Astro Boy. is! A yakuza who doesn’t have a tattoo on his completely hairless head, but rather has a “tattoo” on his sideburns. was.
In addition, he has “evil” inked on his forehead. It is said that it was a strange force with a face of a stiff face.
When Takeshi says, “Ojisan is amazing!”
I showed the tip of my little finger that was stuffed with this. He carved a “Hannya mask” on the cross section and boasted that “This is the most painful.”
There is an episode where when Takeshi said “Shachihata name”, he got angry and chased him all over Asakusa.
And finally, Astro Boy from Asakusa boasted, “But he’s in more pain!”
“Carve an ant on the tip! Make it look like it came out of the urethra.” “First, enlarge the tip and stick a needle in it. There’s a needle in ●●.”
Talking about Chi in the middle of the road with Takeshi…
I would be happy if you could refer to it even a little.
