Taiguruma appears in a graduation show

野口が大学の卒業制作で鯛車を1台、つくることに。このときには街にいた唯一の鯛車職人、長谷川さんはすでに亡くなっていたが、長谷川さんのご自宅にうかがうとまさかのその日が命日で運命的なものを感じる。

Noguchi began studying Taiguruma and decided to make one as a graduation work. He heard a Maki town officer talking about Taiguruma and discovered that Mr. Hasegawa had passed away several years ago. He went to visit Mr. Hasegawa's wife to report about his study and gather materials. Noguchi felt there was a kind of fateful link between the Hasegawa and him because the day he decided to visit was the anniversary of Mr. Hasegawa's death.
