A samurai tale packed with action, laughter and heroic shenanigans.


During the Tokugawa Shogunate, it was mandatory for feudal lords to perform expensive procession marches to pay respect to the shogun. Country simpletons Lord Naito of Yunagawa and his samurai just managed to scrape by for their ritual visit. Both time- and money-poor they literally sprinted for 5 days to get to the capital.

After surviving the journey, and even finding a wife, Naito has every reason to celebrate. But news of their villages being ravaged by rebels prompted the men to swiftly return home to Yunagawa—else they risk losing their land. The men must hike up their kimonos and sprint all the way home in 2 days!

To complicate matters, their old enemy, Lord Nobutoki, reappears to make sure they lose much more than just farmland. Will Naito and his crew be able to thwart the treacherous Nobutoki’s plans and protect their villagers?

Starring Kuranosuke Sasaki (The Inerasable) as the kind-hearted and charismatic leader, and a cast of the most familiar faces in recent Japanese cinema including Hey! Say! JUMP member Yuri Chinen (Samurai Hustle).
