Tokyo, the capital of Japan, now awaits the Olympic Games of 2020. The thing is, the place was in the middle of the wilderness around 400 years ago. Enjoy the drama of Tokugawa Ieyasu, a dreamer who paved the way for a sleepy hamlet in the back country called Edo to become the “Metropolis Edo,” and the zealous men who bet their lives on the shogun’s dream! This is the first dramatization of the work written by the Naoki Prize-winning novelist Yoshinobu Kadoi. The drama dynamically recreates the “building of Edo” by Ieyasu and the nameless men.
