[ Story ]
This is an omnibus picture consisting of three stories.
Tosaku Yakata is a well-known college professor who writes under the name of Toku Ogata.
One day, in Asakusa, the amusement center of Tokyo, he sees a beautiful girl dressed in a lavender and white kimono.
He loses sight of her, but later they meet by chance at a small restaurant. It turns out that the girl, is one of his fans and soon they are like old friends.
Influenced by liquor, and loathe to put an end to the perfect day, night finds them together in a hotel room…
Ogata goes to the quiet mountains of Hakone where suddenly, he finds a vision of loveliness in yellow and black beside him at a soft-drinks stand.
Large dark eyes gaze at him steadily from under long lashes for a moment, and then they crinkle into a smile of recognition. Softly she confesses that he is her favorite author.
When he returns to Tokyo, he finds a letter from Chidori Akagi, the girl in yellow and black, awaiting him, a tantalizing letter filled with veiled promises. His interest is aroused, and he decides to accept her invitation to call on her…
At the soft knock on his door, Ogata looks up to see a girl dressed in blue standing hesitantly on the threshold. He is arrested by the becoming blue dress, but when he notices her sapphire earrings, his heart begins to pound furiously in a rush of memories.
He is not surprised when she calls him Papa, for he had given the earrings to her mother long ago, before she left him to set sail for Shanghai…
