She'll never look back.

Do you want to see her face?

You need to learn your place.

I've seen it.

Shoot me.

You might be able

to see her face.

Where were you?

Have I got a hole in my forehead?

Then you wouldn't be alive, silly.

You're weird.

That was scary!

I can smell it.

Smell what?

Can't you?

Smell what?

How pitiful, yet loveable

it is to live.

I don't get it.

The smell of man.

Are you going home?


- I'm going to Kanazawa.

- So far away?

I'm eloping.

A rendezvous at a spa

near Kanazawa.



Schiller, Mischa...



What are you muttering about?

A train.

I have to get going.

- Thanks.

- Don't move!

Don't worry.

I'll pay you for all this.

I hope she shows up.

I hope she shows up.

To elope with you.

Kanazawa is far away.

Very far away.

I'll be Off.

I'm not going.

Ripe hazelnuts falling...


You aren't eloping?


As she turned over,

he saw her crotch

It was dark, like an aubergine

Like an aubergine

You call this eloping?

- Where are you from?

- Niigata, why?

You have large hands,

like a farmer.

Don't get me wrong.

I like women with big hands and feet.

To elope with?

Was your eloping a joke?

She's sick.

She's 22.

She's called Hikino Kasai.

Suffering from TB.

She couldn't be a farmer.

How to eat tempura soba!

First, have a drink with tempura.

Then you eat the soba.

You're funny today.

Mean sometimes.

Then all cute.

Stay with me tonight.

I told you.

I'm busy eloping.

You really mean it?

I'm going back to Tokyo

to find out if she's serious.

You sketched me.

Can I have it?

Tempura, a whore

Saba, Salome

A head, a flower

You'll never appear in a poem.

When the moon is full

Make love, or go to hell

The fiends will grind you

And eat you alive

Are those chatty women geisha?

Yes. They're always first here.

And after them

come young ladies

from the neighbourhood.

I'm quite impressed.

Don't you remember me?

I've been here before.

Sorry, where are you from?

High society?


I understand...

Miss Kasai always comes

at this time of the day.


Is she coming today?

Yes. She comes every day at 4:00.


To Kanazawa?


I was on the way...

but I was afraid.

You got a fever.

Leave us alone.

Your father watches you

all the time.

That's why we're running away.

You said so.

Miss Hikino!

Can't we be alone?

It's impossible.

For half an hour,

while you're in the bath.


Your maid can bathe alone.

I can't ask her to do that.

All right. I Will.

Wait. Very well.

I'll sort it out, somehow or other.

Wait for me at the usual place.

Has your fever gone?

You're hot.

Hotter here.

I want to talk. Tell me.

Why are you still in Tokyo?

I came to take you with me.

I can't just sit and wait

at some distant spa.

I'll come. Trust me.

Come with me now.

I can't. Not now.

When, then?


Within ten days.

No, not today.

Be quiet.

My hair will get messy.

You're taking a bath.

Wash your hair.

A man of your repute

ought to know better.

You should behave.

You can do what you like to me

once we're there together.

Not here.

It's Yumeji Takehisa.
