The daimyo Ashikaga Sakingo Yorikane, had in his service a retainer, Kinugawa Tanizo. Yorikane was surrounded by many dangers. Tanizo implored him to take refuge in a place of safety. Yorikane refused, not wishing to desert his mistress, the courtesan Takao. Tanizo therefore killed Takao to set Yorikane free and compel him to seek safety (in the triptych a representation of the three characters in the boat where the courtesan will find her death).
