At the beginning of this play, Hanago (shown here hesitating on the hashigakari / bridgeway to the stage) is berated by the innkeeper who is upset by her refusal to serve customers. He says she is always sullen since her lover left. Hanago is depicted clutching a red fan that she was given by her departed boyfriend as a token of his love. Later in this scene the innkeeper grabs the fan, throws it down and expels Hanago from the inn.
