TAKEDA Harunobu is bewildered. If he fights against SUWA Yorishige, his sister Nene, wife of Yorishige will face danger. Then Kansuke proposes to him that it needs to cause discord between the Suwas and the Takatos, branch family of the Suwas.

Heizo loves Hisa but she is going to ARUGA Kiyomasa, lord of Aruga Castle. She worries about that her family will die out in the future but Jugoro tells her that there’s no problem if one of her sons secceeds him.

Harunobu says she is a hostage and  didn’t marry Yorishige of her own will but Sanjo Fujin says so is she. She still worries that Yamamoto Kansuke hopes to trigger a war.

(*) Japanese style pronunciation of Sun Tzu.

(**) The system of treating a talented man as guest and he supports the head of family instead. It is said to originate in ancient China.

(***) Ice cracks appear on frozen Lake Suwa. The word means "god crossing" because there is a legend that it's the path marked by a god who visits a female god by crossing the lake.
