Tōbei Kagetsu (花月藤平, Kagetsu Tōbei) is an medicinal herb seller from Motoyoshi Village who faked his own death.
He and his family were poor and he often joked to bring some happiness to their lives. One day he found some medical herbs on their mountain which he used to make a fortune in wealth. The clan prospered but he became dissatisfied with the way the clan became focused on wealth.
Tōbei is a very happy man who would always joke around with his kids because he wanted them happy too.
Tōbei becomes very unhappy with the rest of his family's greed so, with the help of his youngest daughter Mai Kagetsu, he fakes his death and sets up his funeral to cause the clan members to pull pranks and jokes on each other in order to gain his money through his will. The clan members themselves didn't laugh like he planned so he revealed himself. He spoke of how they had disappointed him. They took his words to heart and adopted a new outlook on life.
