DIRECTOR: HIROKAZU ICHIMURA
STARRING: MATSUYAMA YOKO, TANBA TETSURO, YUKI MEGURO and SHINJI HOTTA
The last film in the series and Oichi the Blind helps a woman escape the clutches of a high government official to go off with the man she loves. The official puts a reward on her head of fifty gold pieces and soon a menagerie of bounty hunters are after her skin.
Three of them band together to accomplish this, one an expert swordsman, another a huge judo master and the third is deadly with a chain. To escape, she heads for the fishing town of Itso but soon comes face to face with Sankuro, the swordsman....
Like the Zatoichi films, the character of Oichi grows on the viewer with each episode as she tries to find a place for herself in society, though in the end her talent with the sword curses her attempts to do so.
