[ Story ]

During the eighteenth century one of the many amenities of Japanese life was the public bath. It was a place of conversation and gaiety during the daytime. But at night the scene was different. Many of the bath attendants were girls who had been sold into this kind of nocturnal slavery and for whom there was no escape.
When a girl named Hatsue (Nihonyanagi Toshie) vanishes, her neighbor, Shinzo (Hayama Ryoji), decides to find her. He discovers another missing girl, working in the bathhouse, and through her is put on Hatsue's track.
Shinzo actually has an ulterior motive. He is a government spy checking into irregularities; knows that a high-ranking minister is behind the racket but before he can unmask him he himself is put into prison.
Hatsue has now become a favorite of the Shogun himself and so the minister cleverly becomes her lover. When Shinzo finally catches him, it is Hatsue who successfully pleads for the villain's life and Shinzo can do nothing. But at least he gets a law passed which forbids the mixed bathing of men and women.
