Are you the one sent by lida clan?

Yes, I'm taking the child to

Takakura of the Komoro clan.

We were expecting you. Follow us.

It was during year 3 of Tenpo era


Did you get the baby?

Yes, my Lord.

This baby is very amiable.

He had a tragic birth.

Give him a lot of love.

I'll raise him as my son.

It was a near thing for him.

About twenty years later...

Father, what are you doing?

I'm preparing my ink.

- Why are you laughing?

- I'm not laughing.

You certainly are.

Are you laughing at my poems?

No, I admire them.

If you're flattering me

it means you want to ask me something.

He wants to make a trip.

A trip?

I want to leave.


A little bit everywhere.

You're only thinking about yourself.

Are you upset?

Not at all.

Where do you want to go?

I don't know.

It's not an answer.


My Lord will refuse.

A little bit everywhere...

A little bit everywhere?

Well, let him do it.

He was born under a bad star.

Be indulgent with him.

Let him go for three years.

Father, I'm cold. Let's close the door.

No, leave it open.

It's the only luxury

allowed to lower rank samurais.

Drinking sake while watching the snow...

There's nothing more beautiful!

For you maybe. But I'm cold!

You are a samourai's daughter.

Learn to endure.

Where can he be right now?

Shingo only thinks about himself.

He only does as he pleases.

Shingo and you never knew your mother.

I want your happiness.

My happiness, what is it?

Finding you a good husband.

I don't want to be married.

- Why not?

- That's how it is.

My dear brother, where are you?

Three years later...

- Brother!

- I'm back.


What did you do?

I observed, a little bit everywhere.

What did you observe?

Plains, mountains...

Plains and mountains...

I envy you.

You did well.

Plains, birds, flowers and dragonflies?

Nature is so beautiful!

Dragonflies, there are some here in Komoro.

It's not the same.

You didn't bring me back

anything from your journey.

I'll think about it next time.

What? Do you plan to leave again?

I'd like to.

Next time I'll go with you.

- I'll leave you for tonight.

- Good night.

Do you know the sword expert Shoji Kahei

from Mito clan?

Yes. Is he the weapon master

practicing Shindo style?

Mito forced upon him an expiatory journey

because he was frequenting dives.

Our clan invited him.

What for?

What a question!

For a tournament of course.

He will test our best fencers.

Don't talk to him about swords.

He's not interested.

You're right.

But if we loose against Shoji,

What's gonna happen?

Our clan will be disgraced.

And our Highness will also

unofficially attend the tournament.

Our Highness will be present.

It's the chance of your life.

You must defeat Shoji Kahei.

But he's highly skilled.

Idiot! Have faith in yourself.

Be brave and determined.

You'd better win.


Our neighbour Ikebe is fidgeting impatiently.

He's sure his son will win.

Gijuro is a skilled fencer.

He's gonna win, that's certain.

He's weird.

He's watching us from behind the hedge.

You're the one he's looking at.

Did you talk to Takakura?

About what?

- You know it.

- Your request? Not yet.


Forget it.

Your victory will open some doors.
