Okiku is a famous woman in a ghost story of Japan.
I will write the outline of this story.
Okiku was a maid of the mansion.
She was very beautiful.
Her employer loved her.
“Okiku, be my wife, be my wife”
He asked her again and again, but she wouldn’t say yes.
The employer hid a plate and he blamed Okiku for stealing it.
The plates are family treasures that have ten pieces in one sets.
He blamed more and tried to cut her with his sword.
Okiku fell in the well and died.
Ever since that, he and his family heard Okiku’s voice from well in the mid-night.
“One plate, two plates, three plates…” Okiku counts the plates.
He and his family became ill and died.
The mansion changed to a haunted mansion.
