Matsumoto, the one the authorities are after, framed Iwami as a shoplifter as he tailed him in the Ginza. While Iwami was in prison, Matsumoto looked for the diamond, and eventually found out that it was hidden in Yamanote, though a house had been built on the lot where Iwami had hidden it. By being in limbo between the pre- and post-earthquake worlds, the former vacant lot thus works as a “wormhole” that allows the two crooks to time-travel to the pre-earthquake world.
The house then was set on ﬁre, either by Iwami, the father, or Matsumoto, to make the land as bare as it had been before.

The character of Matsumoto as both a young, pleasant neighbor, and a thief with tremendous patience and the ability to hide behind the facade of a friendly reporter, reﬂects the city’s darkness and depth.
