Togo Namida (波田 橙吾 Namida Tougo) is a first year student at Mizusawa High School and a member of Karuta Club. He joined the club because he wanted to know, how the Nobility of Heian era dealt with naturally curly hair.
Togo is a quiet and studious young man. He comes off as a narcissist because of his fixation with his curly hair, but the truth is that he gets laughed at because of it.
Togo seems to be a total beginner; he has not even memorized the opening poem, though he also seems to be studying the Hyakunin Isshu.
Because of his prior experience with sports, he approaches karuta from an athletic angle, not unlike Sakurazawa-sensei.
- It bothers the other karuta club members when Togo buys them 2 liter bottled drinks.
