Description The ghost of Sasano Gonza seeks vengeance for his wrongful death. He was executed at Suzugamori, the execution grounds outside Edo (old Tokyo), for supposedly falling in love with another's wife. He still wears the signs of his execution - a robe covered with blood and a broken crossbar tied to his arms.
