Kansuke goes to somewhere also. He sends Harunobu a letter that says he wants to have a leave and then he visits Muryō Kōin Temple in Mt. Kōya where he visited before serving the Takeda clan. But at the same time, Kagetora also visits there because he was given his Buddhist name Sōshin before. That night Kansuke approaches kagetora who chants sutra and they fight each other but was scolded heavily by Sei-in, chief priest of Muryō Kōin. he shows a Mandala, a Buddhist visual schema of the enlightened mind and explains the importance of harmony to them. It reminds Kansuke of the relationship between lord and his vassals.

On the following day, they have breakfast together. Kansuke tells him that the death of Yu-u hime made him visit Mt.Koya and then they talk about the dispute of Kai and Echigo. However, if Kagetora defeats Harunobu, it's meaningless why he becomes a priest. Kagetora smiles wryly and says that he worries about it. And then Masakage and Sanetsuna with some attendants visit Kagetora with the vows of the vassals and ask him to return to Echigo. Kagetora learns that Tomohide starts a riot against Sadamitsu. He decides to go back and tells Kansuke who observes them secretly.  
"Tell your lord that I found an another enemy."

Kansuke returns to Kai also and tells Harunobu and Hara Toratane that he wants to adopt Ritsu. They agree with it and Harunobu shouts,
"Yu-u, alow Kansuke to do so."
Kansuke introduces Ritsu to Denbée, Takichi and his family and hands her a wooden box he was given at Muryō Kōin. There is a statue of Marici in it.
