Print subject: At Okaru's house, Okaru and her mother are worrying that her father Yoichibei has not returned from Kyoto. The people from the brothel come to pay the rest of the money and to take Okaru away, but Okaru's mother says they can't let Okaru go until Yoichibei returns. The people from the brothel force Okaru into a palanquin and are about to leave when Kanpei returns. They explain the situation to him and show him that Yoichibei was carrying the first half of the money in a striped purse exactly like the one the brothel keeper is carrying. Kanpei is shocked to see that this is identical to the purse he took off the body and thinks that he killed Yoichibei. He agrees to let Okaru go to the pleasure quarters. (source: NHK)
