Japanese - A fisherman. Shinsaku fell in love with O Cho San and they arranged to be married. This caused so much trouble among the other fishermen, all of whom were in love with O Cho San, that they cancelled the wedding. Even this did not quell the unrest and Cho drowned herself, overcome with grief. Shinsaku would have followed her example had he not been prevented by her brother, Gisuke. Together, the two men built a shrine to her memory, a task in which they were helped by the other fishermen who were ashamed of their earlier conduct. Also identified as Shinsaku.
