Choemon, the owner of an obi (traditional kimono belt) shop, has had an intimate affair with Ohan, the daughter of the owner of the shop next door called Shinanoya. Choemon's wife Okinu asks Chokichi, an apprentice at Shinanoya, to pretend to be Ohan's lover.
Meanwhile, Choemon's stepmother Otose and her son Gihei plot to take over the obi shop by falsely accusing Choemon of stealing money and by exposing his affair with Ohan. Choemon is saved from this difficult situation by his father Hansai's understanding and Okinu's help.
However, after seeing Ohan's last will and testament that she has left behind, Choemon decides to join Ohan in committing suicide and goes to the Katsura River after her.
