Sankichi

Japanese - A dumb man. Sankichi dived into the sea at the point where Tarada had seen the vision of a girl dressed in white, expecting to find a corpse. Instead, he found a marvellous sword which he took up to the surface and placed in a shrine. The spirit of the sword, the maiden in white, was then satisfied and the fish, long absent from the bay, returned. Sometimes identified as Sankichi.
