[ Story ]
Another adventure of Tora-san (Kiyoshi Atsumi), the itinerant street peddler, who dreams that his sister (Chieko Baisho) and brother-in-law (Gin Maeda) are victimized by a local gang and then goes back home.
Back home, he finds a 'Room for Rent' sign on his uncle's store and thinks they have sold him out.
Contacting a real estate agent, Tora is led back to his uncle's store, but the agent demands his commission for renting the room and Tora leaves again.
He is wandering in a tourist area, selling souvenirs where he meets three girls at a wayside restaurant. Then he tells a sad tale of having been away from home for over 30 years, and his longing to return.
After showing the girls around, he goes home again.
Near his uncle's store, he is discovered by two of the girls he had met on the trip, and they take him home, innocently thinking that he has been away for 30 years.
They soon discover he was only spoofing them and tell Tora that the third girl, Utako (Sayuri Yoshinaga), is always talking about someone and he suddenly realizes that he is in love.
However when Tora hears she is in love with someone else, he tells Utako to go and marry in spite of her father's objections.
He is now too embarrassed to stay at home, and leaves once more to wander as an itinerant street peddler.
