Danshiro was a man who has connections to the story of Banchō Sarayashiki. In the tale he is tasked with finding the person who attempted to poison the Lord of Harima Province. He finds out it is a woman called Okiku but says he will keep it a secret if she decides to become his as he has always loved her.

She refuses, so he frames her for breaking a priceless plate, kills her and throws her down a well.1
