Toyoshi no Mae sends a large chest, ostensibly filled with classical literature including Genji, to her rival, Fuji no Kata. Hidden inside is the villain Yamana Sozen, who desires Fuji no Kata, and plans to take her by force. He bursts out, interrupting Mitsuuji as he tells Fuji no Kata of his love for her. The design for the oban is an amalgamation of two images from the second chapter of "A Rustic Genji."
