Sought-after is the treasure hidden in ZIPANG…
In an era of glory established by Tycoon HIDEOYOSHI—
The indomitable great thief GOEMON(Arata FURUTA) conspires with Cat’s Eye GIN(Yu AOI) to steal “the statue of the Golden Eye” associated with KUKAI(monk, founder of the Shingon sect of Buddhism).
However, AKECHI SHINKURO(Haruma MIURA), a young up-and-coming detective working for the government, pushes GOEMON and his comrades to the corner. It is rumored that the statue carries an encrypted message revealing the location of the treasure hidden by KUKAI.
A bunch of crooks are drawn into a whirl created by GOEMON.
SHUNRAI(Yumiko TAKAHASHI), a nun of Tsukumo Temple, who was robbed of the treasurable statue.
TOYOTOMI HIDEYOSHI(Akaji MARO), and his right-hand men ISHIDA MITSUNARI(Macoto AWANE) & MAEDA KEIJIRO(Jun HASHIMOTO), who happened to learn about the hidden treasure.
Even from overseas are coming the archrival MARRONE d' AVANTGARDE (Shoko TAKADA), and Prince CHARLES of BOSCOGNE(Kenji URAI), who sides with GOEMON.
And one last man, HACHIGAYA ZENBEI(Kunio MURAI), a totally corrupted and evil-natured wealthy merchant of SAKAI, joins to nail the deal.
Who will get the treasure you ask me ?
Well, I am the marvelous master thief ISHIKAWA GOEMON!
I’m gonna be naughty and wild!!!
