O Cho San

Japanese - A maiden. Sister of Gisuke. The fisherman Shinsaku fell in love with her and they arranged to be married. This caused so much trouble among the many other fishermen who were in love with her that they put off the wedding. When that proved insufficient, Cho drowned herself and Shinsaku was prevented from doing the same only by her brother who persauded him to build a shrine to her memory. The other fishermen, ashamed of their conduct, helped him with its construction. Sometimes referred to as O Cho San.
