Chichijirou Saketome (酒留父字郎 Saketome Chichijirō) is Piyohiko's father, a maker of weird and rare flutes. Chichijirou is close buddies with Jaguar due to their shared interest in flutes. Chichijirou wishes for his son to share his interest in flutes and to make him play them. Piyohiko's dislike of flutes is mainly due to his father's idiotic obsession with them, and his hopes that Piyohiko will take over his flute businesses. Chichijirou is so laughably uncreative when designing flutes that to him, every one of Piyohiko's average ideas seems like a stroke of genius.
