This is the unique and unpredictable story about Mr. Ryuichi Ichinokawa and his unusual way of life. On the surface Ryuichi looks like an ordinary Japanese man. He is 44 years old, married and is the father of two boys. The Ichinokawa family seems on the outside to lead a completely normal family life. Every day Ryuichi goes to work at the post office. However, there is a secret side to Ryuichi unknown to most - even his family doesn't know about this. Apart from his job at the post office he has another occupation. A job that is anything but ordinary. Ryuichi owns a company called Hagemashi Tai, one of Japan's most peculiar companies.
