Summary of Golden Kamuy
In the early 1900s, in Hokkaido, after the Russo-Japanese War, Saichi Sugimoto searched relentlessly for gold. Nicknamed “Sugimoto the Immortal” for his death-defying actions in battle, the ex-soldier seeks his fortune to fulfill a promise he made to his best friend before he was killed in action: to to provide for his family, especially his widow who needs treatment. abroad because of his poor eyesight. One day, a drunk colleague tells Sugimoto the story of a man who murdered a group of Ainu and stole a fortune in gold. Before the police caught him, he hid the gold somewhere in Hokkaido. The only clue to his location is the encrypted map he tattooed on the bodies of his colleagues in exchange for a share of the treasure, should they manage to escape and find it.
Sugimoto doesn’t think much of the story until he finds the body of the drunk with the same tattoos described in the story. But before he can gather his thoughts, a man-killer grizzly bear approaches Sugimoto, determined to finish his meal. It is survived by a young Ainu girl named Asirpa, whose father turns out to be one of the Ainu murderers. Using Asirpa’s hunting skills and Sugimoto’s survival instincts, the two agree to go together and find the hidden treasure: one to reclaim what was rightfully his family’s, and the other to fulfill her friend’s last wish.
