Japanese - A gardener. A noble gave him money to be allowed to transplant an ancient plum tree from Hambei's garden but Hambei sent the money back when Sumono, the spirit of the tree, wept. The angry noble slashed at Hambei with his sword but succeeded only in cutting off a branch of the plum tree which fell on his head. The weakened tree died soon afterwards and the noble's father died at the same time. At times, called Hambei.
