Years later in a strange twist of fate, the son of the man he accidentally killed comes under his tutelage. It is perhaps karma, then, that this young man should discover a murder plot against Heizaemon, and that behind the conspiracy is Heizaemon’s lover… Meanwhile, Heizaemon’s beautiful daughter Otsuyu falls madly in love, but she dies tragically. Night after night, the sound of clogs echoes in the streets as the ghost of Otsuyu visits her lover’s bedchamber, lit by the flame from a peony lantern..
