On a mission of mercy to fulfill a dying man's final request, our hero finds himself again on the road to adventure.
As luck would have it, Zatoichi meets up with a blind priest who leads him to the once quiet and peaceful town of Ichinomiya. No longer a sleepy haven, the place is now overrun by yakuza. Here Zatoichi not only discovers the mysterious Taichi, but also finds bloodshed and death!
