Program Abstract: Near the end of the Edo Period, the son of wealthy merchants decides to turn his back on his family’s profession and become an author instead. While he has done little but write children’s riddles, he hits upon the idea of writing a collection of stories about the mysterious and the supernatural. One rainy night, a chance encounter with a monk and his strange associates on a mountain will pull the author into a world of darkness he can scarcely begin to imagine. He finds himself pulled along with a trio of people apparently dedicating to cleansing corruption from the land: Mataichi, a mysterious monk; Nagamimi, a hulking master of disguise; and the beautiful Ogin. Are the trio truly fighting corruption or are they perhaps servants of something much worse?
