The 47 Ronin, Act 6: The Departure of Okaru and the Suicide of Kampei - Interesting interpretation of Act 6 of the "Kanadehon Chushingura," the drama about the 47 ronin.

At left, the owner of a brothel has arrived to take away Okaru, who has sold herself to earn the money for her father to take part in the vendetta against Moronao.
