Tomojiro Oishi is a landlord farmer who understood Onisaburo's
work and paid him a train fare to visit Katsutate Nagasawa, an authority
on Shinto and spiritual science, in Shizuoka.
Kisaburo attended a festival of this shrine and made a pass at
a pretty girl.
To rob Onisaburo of his worldly desires, one of his guardian deities,
Oshimo, made an intentionally false promise that he would give Onisaburo a hefty sum of
money. As a result, Onisaburo and Nakaichi Saito stopped by this shrine
as instructed before expecting to receive the money on Ashinoyama Pass.
Onisaburo and Nakaichi Saito fell for Oshimo's trick and had to
grab cow dung on this pass. (They thought they grabbed a lost wallet as
Oshimo described, but it proved to be cow dung.)
