Japanese - An innkeeper. He ill-treated the old man, Kanshiro, who stayed at his inn when he was travelling to take money for the upkeep of a shrine, and stole all the money from the pilgrim's bag. Kanshiro cursed him and, when the old man died, a great swarm of fire-flies flew out of his tomb and smothered Jimpachi who died in agony. Occasionally referred to as Jimpachi.
