Japanese - A priest. When Shinzaburo came to him for help in dealing with the ghosts of Tsuyu, the maiden who had died of love for him, and her maid Yoné, the priest gave him a statuette of the Buddha and various other talismans. These succeeded in keeping the ghosts at bay until, as a result of treachery by Shinzaburo's servant, Tomozo, they were able to gain access once more to the house of the young samurai who was found dead the next morning. At times, identified as Ryoseki.
