From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ōedo Sōsamō (大江戸捜査網 ?) and Shin Ōedo Sōsamō (新・大江戸捜査網 ?) are long-running prime-time television jidaigeki programs that originally aired from 1970 to 1992. The series was broadcast on TV Tokyo (initially known as Tokyo 12 Channel). Early on, it carried the subtitle "Ōedo Untouchables."

The central characters are undercover police agents in Edo. They work under the direction of a hatamoto, and later, under Matsudaira Sadanobu (1759–1829).



A 1979 film, Onmitsu Dōshin Ōedo Sōsamō starred Hiroki Matsukata, included Toshiro Mifune in the role of Matsudaira Sadanobu.


Apart from Episode 11, which is unavailable (the tape has been destroyed), Jidaigeki Senmon Channel has rerun all the other 715 episodes via satellite and cable.[1]
