SOMEONE WHO CLEANS REMNANTS OF A DEATH
YAMADA Masato changed his job to a special cleaning business for restoring places that are impaired by lonely deaths, suicides, hoarding, etc. He imagines the life of the deceased as he puts off their leftover thoughts, taking the risk of infection and injury, not to mention coping with the mess. How the various “remnants of a death” are cleaned—the work comically depicts this topic that tends to be grotesque.
