TAYA Jun (Child)
Nitaroh (Nitaboh) is born to a poor family of a waterman, a man who lets people on his boat and helps them to cross the river, living in rural Aomori prefecture, at the very northern tip of Japan¡¯s main land. Nitaroh has an extremely humble background and Nitaroh¡¯s mother died just after his birth. In spite of being in such a sorry plight, he is a healthy child. However, when he is 8 years old, he catches smallpox which was epidemic at the time and loses his eyesight. Nonetheless, he is looking for his way through life with an interest to flute and Shakuhachi (traditional Japanese bamboo flute).
One day, Nitaroh was fascinated by the shamisen performance by Tamana, a blind woman playing the shamisen and singing for her living, and decides to learn how to play it from her. Tamana was on a half way of her trip with her daughter, Yuki, but decides to stay there for a while and teach Nitaroh.
When Nitaroh is 11 years old, his father, Santaroh, passes away. Nitaroh has no parents or relatives left around him, but he makes his mind to make his living by playing the shamisen.
