After the Flowers.

Emperor Saga was the one

that adopted this custom.

Cherry blossom viewing.

was originally a custom, limited

to the elite of the Imperial Court.

Cherry blossoms along the river was

such a wonderful sight to behold.

Although sake was prohibited,

it was still pleasant.

Having lunch amidst the blossoms.

You'll hear people enjoying

with cheer and laughter.

Gives one comfort and tranquility.


that is not all.

Blossoms not only mesmerizes

women and children.

But transcends hierarchy and

caste systems.

So that everyone can

appreciate it's full glory.

It is said that His Majesty once came to view

the blossoms dressed as an unknown warrior.

Looked for a bride amidst

the blossoming flowers.

Whether it's story holds any

truth is beyond me.

However as this rumor

became prevalent.

Whenever Cherry blossoms, families

insisted elegance in kimonos attire.

But my grandmother do

not care for such.

She was interested in

sword fighting craft.

She didn't care how

others view her much.

This is a story of more

than 50 years ago.

Lady Ito.

We'll settle down here.


Lady Ito?

Lady Tusue is here.

You're here.

Yes. I'm here.

You can lay down here as well.

The cherry blossoms here

are wonderful in full bloom.

I'm afraid not.

With you here. Other men

might not approach.


News have spread.

That you were victorious

in Hagai dojo.

The dojo is now infamous.

Because none of the

men can beat you.

I see.

Like the saying goes for anyone who's

had an achievement in martial arts.

You are a difficult person

to get near to.

I'll say my farewell then.

She is so realistic.

Regardless that you're sisters.

We'll never find another

similar relative like her.

Well. As the eldest daughter

of the Clan elder.

I guess it's inevitable.

Well, it's time we return.

Why are we leaving so early?

If we were to leave late.

There's gonna be a crowd

returning to the city,

Your father will not approve

of us returning late.



Most unfortunate.

The blooms are only fleeting.

Excuse me?

Forgive me if I am wrong.

Are you the daughter of

Clan Elder Mr. Terai?


I'm from Hagai Dojo.

I've heard of your abilities.

Unfortunate that I was

unable to attend.

Oh! Are you Eguchi ?

I am Eguchi, Magoshiro.

Pity I had missed the chance.

So do I.

I've hear that you have

excellent sword skills.


I have learned a lot myself.

I consider myself lucky to have won.

You're too modest.

I would like the opportunity to

have a friendly duel with you.

I would like the chance

to learn from you.

Lady Ito. It's time.

I'm sorry to have

taken your time.

Until the next time.

Til the next time then.

You shouldn't talk to him.

You know nothing of him.

And he looks of a lower caste.

I'm not sure.

Eguchi is the top swordsman

of the Hagai Dojo.

When father took me to

look at him practice.

No one could beat him.

No matter.

Even if you were just talking

about sword play.

You still have to be aware of

who you converse with in public.

Don't over react, Osa.

Anyway, we just talked

about swordplay.

In any case,

Don't tell mom about this.

She'll be unhappy,

if she learns about this.

Osa? Please keep this to yourself.

Is this a tale of young love?

Take a guess.

Unrequited love.

A love story unlike another.

That's full of sweet joy.

We can say that the heart

suffers bitter in love.

Listen carefully to what

I am about to reveal.

- With a little sesame.

- Yes.

- Are they finishing work?

- Yes.

Lady Ito's home!

- That is all.

- Yes.

Sorry for being late.
