The golden age is not the product of the Taisho and Showa periods only. It is said that love potions from Sado work best*. Surrounded by policemen, thieves cut their bellies and scatter stolen gold from the top of a tower. Can the policemen take this gold, or does it become property of the commander and the Shogunate? Who knows where such dirty money goes.
*This proverb means that coins minted from gold of the Sado Kinzan mine work better than any other love potion.
