As Kikutaro wants his younger legitimate half brother, Tetsuzo, to be an heir to their father, Kikutaro ran away from home to set out for an aimless journey. After years of wanderings, Kikutaro came back to Kyoto and is leisurely staying at an inn called Koiya without paying any charge. Koiya is a special kind of an inn called Kujiyado which operates as a law office for civil cases as well as an accommodation in the Edo period. Kikutaro acts as a bouncer to the place and as an adviser to of the cases handled at the inn. Sometimes, his younger brother, Tetsuzo, now chief police officer, visits Kikutaro to ask for his advice on the cases. Kikutaro solves various cases that are brought to Koiya helping Tetsuzo. Part 3 starts as Kikutaro, who left Kyoto in the last episode of Part 2, returns after three years. --NHK
