Yoshimoto Kogyo which produces a number of popular artists such as Akashiya San and Downtown and reigns in Japan's comedy world.
Do you know that the history was started by a single woman in the Meiji era?
Well, what are you talking about now?
The NHK Dora Dora "Wa Taenka" which began broadcasting in October 2017.
The main character · Fujioka Tan is a drama based on Yoshimoto Souichi's founder · Yoshimoto Sei.
A smiley "Gera" (laughing Ueda) has nothing to do.
A daughter of a merchant who falls in love with traveling performer Kitamura Fujiyoshi.
Although it is drawn as a morning drama seemingly cheerful and bright female statue, Yoshimoto Sei who became a model, rather than "Uh, this girlfriend", has been struggling hard from a young age and plays the company on a mid-way goal It was a strong woman who had grown a lot of entertainers.
What kind of person was Mr. Seii Yoshimoto, a historical fact?
I tried collectively 60 years of his life. (Hereafter, honorific title omitted)
Born as three women of 12 siblings
In 1889 (Meiji 22), the founder was born as the third woman of a rice commerce and forest house in Akashi City, Hyogo Prefecture.
The house was not so affluent, it was 12 siblings, so it could not be said that it was easy living.
Although I wanted to continue my studies with my excellent grades, I can not afford such a luxury economy.
When we finished up to the fourth year of elementary elementary school which is compulsory education at that time, it was served to the service person of Senba businessman.
This was the family situation of less than average at that time.
Morning Dora's heroine mostly goes to girls' school as a matter of course, but in their case they are ladies of pretty wealthy houses.
The office of the fault was a thrift.
Sparing itself is not a bad thing.
However, as time goes by, it will be almost like abusing.
The master here is troubled by the appetite for servants and maids, so we decided to place pickled barrels in places where rainwater would be bothering so they could have a stench.
One day, I propose this way because I could not bear much of the work.
"Why buy ginger with the money collected by the servants, carve it and feed it?"
It is truly a fine idea, but this is in my ear's ears, and the fault was scolded heavily.
From this anecdote, it can be said that not only the master 's dookies but also the fight' s tactics.
unreliable husband, worker's wife
Around the age of 19, her father was married to Yoshijiro, the second son of the Yoshimoto family.
A well-known store named "Tenjiyoshi".
When Yoshiro is succeeding to the house, he asserts the name of the principal and begins to call him Kichibei.
However, at that time it was around the time the bubble burst after the Russo-Japanese War.
Everywhere is also a recession, "Takeshiyoshi" was also inclined to manage.
Far away from working to rebuild it, Kichibe with a nature to escape from reality.
He liked performing arts and he was an unavoidable guy who just played.
When the creditors thrust to their homes, they respond to the clouds hidden, and when the creditors go home they scold the scenes and scolded the scams and threatened with Japanese swords, so even if they were really bad There is none.
It may be that Yoshibei's irresistible accident is frustrating to look down on his weak self, but it is a story like seeing the darkness of old Japanese families.
In addition, my mother-in-law's calling was also terrible.
This mother-in-law was Yuki, not the mother of Kibubei, but the wife of Kichibei's father.
Yuki placed Den in the front of the newlyweds who came back from home.
Atsuko (thick clothing for winter) is piled up. When washing a thick thick baby thoroughly, the skin peels off and the blood starts to bleed. The water of the 染 stained red with blood.
How to make a meal, from cleaning up to business. Yuki who says something unpleasant with netine net.
The problem of the bride and mother-in-law is considered to be between women, but the husband between should be able to mediate.
But Kibei was indifferent.
Koshiyoe is still better if you are just playful.
I love entertainment love and trying to do entertainment entertainment even by myself, I will be deceived and drive my family business down to business.
The fault is unavoidably entrusted to the parents' house, but even my parents will say this from my father.
"Break up if it is a husband without prospects"
"Go back from your married daughter after you become a bone"
Which way is it? How do you do?
I wanted to thrust in, but it was because of being told such contradictions … ….
The fight tried to do internal work or to work and managed to support households.
She has many children, the mother of the second son and six girls. But at that time the infant's mortality rate is much higher than in the present age.
The eldest son, the eldest daughter, the second daughter, the fourth woman crashed, and it became a mother of eight people on the family register, but since the fault himself said that there were more than ten children, miscarriages etc There was a possibility.
The times are era.
Family 's fault caused the sweat water and worked, even if you earn it would have been the burned stone water.
Beginning of "Yoshimoto Kogyo Department"
In 1912 (Meiji 45), Yoshihiro, who enjoyed entertainment love, bought "Second Literary Museum".
The poor Yoshihin also had no money to buy, the fight came down to the money policy, headed to the parents' house, and finally came to seek help.
The occasion at this "Second Literary Museum" is the occurrence of "Yoshimoto Kogyo".
"Yoshimoto Kohi Department" will be established the year after acquisition.
Nonetheless, Tenman in downtown has many tickets and the second literary pavilion was the lowest rank.
How to pack customers as much as possible, how do you earn Kudo Kiyomasa entrance fee?
That is a contrivance.
Anyway, if you want an admission fee, pack your guests tightly.
There is no air conditioning, and the window is shut down and it is Munmun.
Then, the customer will go out as "Tamari Tamahawa". Then, as a result, the rotation of the customer becomes efficient.
When rain begins, raindrop guests push.
Then, I change the signboard of admission fee and take double as usual.
If it is a modern age, it is a means that is likely to rush up complaints, but this was not only the Yoshimoto and Mrs. Yoshimoto, but the occasion at that time was such a thing.
It is not interesting as a Shitarago by ingenuity to deceive these customers.
From here on, it is the way we are going to demonstrate the wicking movement.
Despite being a box officer, she helped organize the audience seats and dressing up the entertainers.
The performer is impressed by the concern of his fault.
"Awesome auntie and I"
If you get the same galleries, it would be better for the employer to be kind.
The enthusiasts who were deeply moved by the concern 's concern, refined the skills of the arts and showed better things, they repaid them.
Her move and care in this neighborhood is carefully drawn also by Yamazaki Toyoko's novel "Flower Goodwill".
One profit even in merchandising
Also, I thought.
Is income only admission fee?
In the muggy summer, customers went out from the vicinity while wiping sweat.
"If you sweat so much, you can drink something cold on your way …"
and I will notice that there.
It is the possibility of sales.
Because I acted so quickly, I bought cold candy in a confectionery shop.
Chilled candy is not so – called "American" but "drink".
It is a summer drink that is drunk in the Kansai area (currently Hiroshima prefecture · Kochi prefecture) with ginger squeezed in hot syrup melted with hot water (Reference / Nikkei Newspaper ) .
When I installed an instant store to the venue, I started selling "chilled ice" cold candies.
Moreover, the selling method was unusual.
Normally I put it in a barrel and cool it, she cooled down a bottle of chilled candy on ice, rolled it over and sold it.
Receiving the style of rolling this bottle, people who travel will start to buy amusing.
At first we plan to sell to passengers only, but they will sell to passersby.
"Will you also look at the voucher at the party next to candy?"
And the effect that customers who stopped their legs to buy cold candy will go to the vaudeville!
Because I noticed the possibility of selling goods, I will devise further measures.
Eating and drinking prohibition is common when viewing the stage right now, but at that time it was natural to eat something in the vaude's seat.
I added a review to this food type.
For example, sell salable products as much as possible, rather than sweets.
That way you will thirsty and drinks will be sold.
Furthermore, since it is said that they picked up the peeled mandarin leaves that customers had left behind and dried them, they sold it to Chinese medicine bureau, so it is a great ingenuity.
On the other hand, Yoshibei of a husband who does not put too much in business while starting herself.
I was deeply impressed by the way he actively ventured into the business beside his husband Boncra, and even thoughtfully considering the entertainers.
"Even for that girlfriend, I do my best!"
Since its founding it was a stadium of Yoshimoto Kogyo.
dominate the upper performance world
There is a wonderful ingenuity of a faulty and selling merchandise that is modern even passable.
However, business does not just grow by itself.
In 1915 (Taisho 4th year), Yoshimoto Kogyo Division renamed multiple voters who had diversified as "Hanatsuki".
For example, the second literary museum is "Tenma Hanatsuki".
"Blooming with flowers, dancing with the moon, betting everything"
It was quite a windy name with such meaning put in it.
At that time, the Kansai comedy world was divided into various factions.
Yoshimoto Kogyo Division gathered rakugo families not belonging to factions and formed "Hanatsuki school". Furthermore, I also absorb "Naniwa Rakugo opponents".
This is not a "faction of Naniwaki Rakugo" but a faction.
It was not only the victory, but also the impersonator and gist, daughter Yoshio, sword dance, acrobatics.
Furthermore, by acquiring "Red Komei Tei" which is the center of Mitomi school, we will stop by Mitomi school, and by 1922 (Taisho 10 years) we will reign as the emperor of the upper performance world.
For this breakthrough, the existence of Kichibe who has a passionate interest in the entertainer world would have been great even though the work was not enthusiastic.
In the Yoshimoto Kogyo Department, we will accumulate pon and gold for entertainers who can call customers.
Then, the entertainers who are watching it come to selling themselves, "Mr. Yoshimoto's wife (wife) is a generous person".
This is exactly as calculated by the fault.
The entertainer of Toroko who carried this in this way advertises it as a signboard artist with a dawn.
By the way, a monthly salary of a performer was 500 yen.
Since the middle-aged office worker of the time is 40 yen era, how high salary basket can you understand?
That small boy, knowing the money account, do not know the tricks and tricks
Even when the Great Kanto Earthquake occurred in 1923 (Taisho 12 year), Yoshimoto Kogyo Division changed to a chance.
The fault sends relief supplies for reconstruction to Kanto.
It is a miserable idea to send not only monetary donation but also what you want right now, such as bedding and food. I firmly supported the enthusiasts of Kanto.
Tokyo entertainers came to Osaka without waiting for reconstruction and began to attend.
There are differences between comedy and east and west, and their art is not necessarily received by customers in Kansai, but there may be sometimes referred to as "support for reconstruction by looking at the vaudeville." Guest entering was superior.
But the trials will also attack the fight here.
In 1924 (Taisho 13), shortly after the birth of the second son, the last child to the founder, Kichibe died.
Working as 37 years of age. Having a young child, he was 34 years old and became a widow.
I will call on my brother, Masanosuke and Hirokazu, to help the Yoshimoto Kogyo department.
Their younger brother was excellent and the business continued to grow steadily.
It is true that his younger brother is outstanding, however, Masanosuke was a person who "is not good at money even though he is good at money account".
It seems to be a man full of faults, but I also put a rakugo house at first glance so I can understand the arts.
I am also good at negotiating.
But Younosuke who is young and does not have a sense of entertainment has been left untouched by rakugo players.
"That boy, knowing the money account, I do not know how to trade"
Masanosuke liked those that are easier to understand than professional comedy.
It is a sharp business intuition that I used it for plus rather than minus.
If it is funnable even if Masunosuke without sense, it would be useful to have a sense of brother, that he would accept everyone.
On the other hand, I listened to the complaints of rakugo families who were angry and played a role of soothing.
Another brother · Hiromichi is different from his brother, there was a more romantic part than severe feeling.
Brothers are quite different in character, and there are also parts that seem to have conflicted if you work together in Osaka.
We also had a sense of arranging it at the right place.
Perhaps it was a sensitive person of humanity.
The times are seeking easy-to-understand laughter!
When the Taishō era from the Meiji era, it will be in the Showa era.
The lives of citizens have also changed.
If only performing arts are outdated, will not we catch up with the change?
They start thinking so. At such time, Masanosuke will watch everyday.
Banzai is a very old history entertainment, originally celebrated things.
Two-person entertainers who hold hand drums perform while playing kabuki parodies and small crowds, which are distinctive in each area.
For Masanosuke who was disliked from the rakugo family, it was attractive to be able to bring up new arts.
Lost element of celebration from birthday, let Harrisen in place of drum, letting funny funny stories to be easily understood even by people without education and sense -.
This bicycle, however, was still seen with white eyes at that time.
A top-notch entertainer faces a customer by itself.
It was because there was a consciousness that playing with two people is a downgraded one by one.
It was also contributed to the disappointment from the storyteller that Mr. Tsunosuke who is not aware of the arts was inferred.
However, at the end of 1927 (Showa 2 years), Yoshimoto Kogyo decided to play a million in old-fashioned "Benten".
Rakugo players with pride are not funny either.
Dissatisfied was brought on by a fault, but I did not try to stop the show itself.
The "All-Year-Old Chairman Convention" held in this way is a great success.
Tsunosuke is a stupid thing.
Then, on the momentum we will open a dozen years old specialty of "admission fee of 100 yen" to Namba.
At the mainland Namba, this price is inexpedient.
"Ten-ten-thousand-year-old" became a big epidemic, until the popularity vote of "a million-year-old tournament festival" was held.
Despite being successful up to this point, the fault was dissatisfied.
Something novelty seems to be lacking in decisive innovation at the age of 10.
Something is unsatisfactory as I want to appeal to a completely new entertainment, a different customer base.
There were two people Yoshimoto set up the arrow of bare feet, Yokoyama Entatsu and Hanabu Akyako.
Achaco who was a million years old.
Have experience overseas experience in the USA, keep imitating Chaplin and mustache Keep enthusiasm of enthusiasm.
Entaz thinks that he wants to create a new art, and it was exactly in agreement with the conditions Yoshimoto sought.
The two changed birthdays.
· Stop Kimono and stand on stage in a Western-style suit
· Stop talking and counting like "sudden" (parody of Kabuki)
· In Takaza call "Kimi" "I"
It is not a person who dares to see an entertainer from seeing it, but a person who is not much different from a salaried worker in town makes a fairly interesting interaction.
This combination produced such a new entertainment.
But they were not accepted soon.
When he stood at Takato, he was scattered.
"Honma's" Banzai "clan!"
This is the real, new birthday if you try it for enthusiast and achaco.
But the audience wanted to see old-fashioned things.
That is why I am sorry for students and salaried workers who want to see something new.
"Unlike old people, it seems to be interesting that that" you are going to be a million years old "
Half a year after the formation of the combination, Entaz Achaco became an entertainer of a seller even in Yoshimoto.
I was satisfied with this case, finally I found a new entertainment that was convincing.
In this way, the main force of the Yoshimoto Kogyo department switched from Rakugo to banzai. And when that birthday begins to crowd the audience comes out who is turning into a rakugo family who had been looking at the age of 10 with bitter eyes.
Then, it means that the name is old as usual.
Leaving the sound, addressing the letter, the birth of "comic".
It was a revolution to change the world of entertainment.
Radio waves came
It was due to create a new entertainment called comic, but there was also a conservative part.
For foresightedness, I felt that the limits would come if we entraped the arts only in the hut.
Before the radio and movies, they will be obsolete.
However, this does not mean that we can immediately get on the tide of new media.
In 1930 (Showa 5), Yoshimoto Kogyo Division was furious that Kei Spring Foundation Radio broadcast radio story of Rakugo without permission.
I was worried that when rakugo was done on the radio, there would be no guests who came to listen to the voucher.
Broadcast JOBK (Osaka Broadcasting Station), Second generation Chisen Spring Complex, Yoshimoto Kogyo Division had a trouble with this broadcasting.
but gradually they began to realize that it was better to reconcile.
JOBK knows that it will definitely be very popular if it broadcasts the popular comic "Entertainment Achaco" comedy "Waseda battle."
As Yoshimoto Kogyo Department also began to notice the advertising power of the radio, well Well here I start to think that the one who reconciled while the other's head bowed down.
The broadcast of "Waseda battle" decided in this way will be broadcasted live from "South Kage Hazuki".
There was topicality, too, I am very satisfied because I saw the venue full of customers.
And at this time it did not seem that the radio would reduce customers.
"I heard the radio broadcast on the radio, the next day, I'm sure I will rush to the vote"
Such a reading is perfect and hit. Instead of reducing customers, the radio has helped to increase it.
When "Waseda battle" took place on the radio, Japan became Fever state in Japan.
Yoshimoto Kogyo Department hired a large number of writers for comic books in the literary club in order to make the popularity of comic books even more sure.
The gathering artists exchanged their enthusiasm and kept up a better screenplay.
Meanwhile, there were rakugo players who were dissatisfied with the attitude of the Yoshimoto Industry Division that emphasized comic books.
Especially the second generation Shishi Spring Foundation conflicts in various policies, and it finally cracked.
With feud and death with him, Yoshimoto Kogyo Division ended off with rakugo.
"Woman Now Taiko" "Glory of Female Version Kazuzo Kobayashi"
Comic and radio.
With this combination of stones, the name of Yoshimoto Kogyo Division began to roar all over Japan.
The reason for standing at the top is that it is said that "Woman now Taiko", "Female Version Kazuzo Kobayashi".
Kobayashi Izumi is a leading businessman at the time. In the drama "Waitenka", it is a person who is seen as a model of Ikunoshi Takahashi played by Mr. Takahashi .
In 1928 (Showa 3rd year), the achievement of charity project was accepted, received "Navy Award Praises", and in 1934 (Showa 9 years), it was honored with recognition from the Osaka prefecture for achievement.
Yoshimoto, who was called "Woman now Taiko", ironically has the same loneliness as that of Toyotomi Hideyoshi until the twilight of his later years, and a certain incident will come to light.
That was about 1935 (Showa 10 years).
A politician named Shinjiro Tsujisaka was arrested on tax evasion case.
Together with the Osaka Prefectural Assembly Chairman Shinjiro, who was successful both as a businessman and as a politician, was whispered as a fault.
The father donated a lot of money to his political activities.
There was also rumor that the fault was awarded from Osaka Prefecture, and Shinjiro's foundation was also found.
Then the spark will sprinkle on the fuse. They are ordered to appear at the authorities as being involved in tax evasion work.
To the fall of "Woman Taiko", the media jumped.
Even in this case where a lot of arrestors came out, the attention of the fault was an order of magnitude.
But the case will end in an unexpected form.
In January 1936, Shinjiro hung the neck in prison.
The biggest suspect is gone, and you can no longer continue the investigation.
Shinjiro seems to have kept the silence at all with respect to the fault, and he kept her at the very last moment.
Incidentally, this Tsujisaka Shinjiro also seems to have the theory that it is a model of Ino Shiori in "Waitaeka".
If you died this way in the drama, you will have a similar end to Monday, Mr. Takahashi played by "Naoto Otoshira Naoto".
However, I think that it will not be such a thing when coming to Kobayashi Kazuzo, another influential model … ….
Tsutenkaku also obtained
1938 (Showa 13 years), Yoshimoto Kogyo Division became Yoshimoto Kogyo Co., Ltd.
With this, he decided to draw from a line.
In the same year, I will buy Tsutenkaku for 200,000 yen.
Tsutenkaku is still a symbol of Osaka, but at that time it is more than that.
It is exactly like Showa version Osaka Castle.
Because I got this, just "Woman Taiko" was one of the most successful people in Osaka.
Tsutenkaku at that time was a relic of an outdated era.
There is also a dramatized story (Novel "Flower Goodwill") that I got it by considering the possibility of advertisement advertisement, but this was done before the fight became owner.
There might have been a desire to become "the castle owner" rather than the actual rate.
By the way the first Tsutenkaku who came out was burned down in 1943 (Showa 18), and the current one is the second generation.
'Twilight of' Woman Now Tai '
When the fight retires the front line, Yoshimoto Kogyo Co., Ltd. faces a crisis.
It became a wartime regime, and comedy is no longer needed. This situation will continue until the defeat of 1945 (Showa 20).
But in the defeat battle it is not supposed to breathe a breath, and further tragedy attacks it.
The second son, Yuukusui, the only son who survived for him, grew up drowning in his mother without knowing his father's face.
He was reviving the growth of this son, and both Yoshimoto Kogyo Co., Ltd. intend to entrust himself to Shinzo.
However, Yuan Ryou resists the mother's stomach and falls in love with Shindo Kasami.
Shizuko is a flower form of the Osaka Opera Theater (OSK) called "Queen of Boogies".
However, despite pregnancy of Shiduko, I strongly oppose this love affair.
While he was doing so, Yukishin fell to pulmonary tuberculosis at the age of 24 and finished a short life.
A child born by Shiduko was an important grandchild for the fault.
The father died in 60 years old in 1950 (Showa 25) three years after my baby died.
The cause of death was the same pulmonary tuberculosis as right side. I got all kinds of success, I gained the financial strength, but I could not get home-grown happiness.
That lonely latter year was somewhat similar to Toyotomi Hideyoshi who got its alias.
Yoshimoto that delivered laughter during Japan.
Besides beautiful things, sometimes I also talked closely with something behind the scenes, demonstrating a tremendously proficient skill as if I was mourned by the performers "tied with money".
It was a life-like worker who was somewhat lonely and somewhat lonely.
