The scene takes place in the house of Jingoro, a wood carver. Jingoro celebrates with wine for the completion of the doll, Kyo Ningyo, which is a replica of Umegae, whom he fell in love with. Suddenly, Kyo Ningyo becomes animated. Since the first person she sees is Jingoro - a man- she moves like a man. Though distressed at first, Jingoro then has the idea to have the doll carry Umegae's mirror with her. For it is said that a mirror is a soul of a woman. Will the miracle work to make the doll become the beloved Umegae?
