==Background==
Ikumatsu and her parents lived in poverty until they started a successful clothing business. One day, her [[Musashi|father]] saved a young boy from drowning on a river, who turns out to be [[Daigo]] (Ikumatsu's future husband). However, Matsugorou lost his memories and married another woman, leaving his wife and daughter behind. Her mother knew the truth, but choose not to tell Ikumatsu. Years later, Matsugorou is found by Daigo who takes him to his ramen shop in an attempt to repay the debt of saving his life.

Ikumatsu and her husband, Daigo (大吾) intended to turn their ramen shop into one that would be the best in Edo, but due to the sudden death of her husband by Jouishishi terrorists, they were unable to succeed.

After [[Daigo]] passed away, Ikumatsu came to hold a deep grudge against the [[Jouishishi]], as the event was one that continued to sprinkle salt onto such scars; but other than that, she is a kind, wise and deeply caring soul. Ikumatsu was quick to lend a helping hand to [[Katsura Kotarou|Katsura]], even though she knew he was being chased down by the Shinsengumi, citing her reason being that the man was wounded.

Her husband's brother would later come to her shop, harassing her and asking for money to run a Jouishishi group, when in fact he was just a lowly thug. After denying him the money, he would kidnap Ikumatsu and try to sell her off to a brothel. However, Katsura, who had worked as a waiter in her shop to hide from the Shinsengumi, eventually came to her rescue. They were able to thank each other before Katsura departed, still on the run from the police force.
