In the mid-sixteen hundreds, on the coast of Japan, near the city of Kobe, twins were born to a rice farmer and his wife. However, as the years went by, poverty rose for Goto Uchjima, his wife Yoko and the twin girls Hanako and Miki.
Life became harder for the Uchijima family – until finally, the twins were sold to a geisha procurer.
However, only Hanako would become a geisha, while Miki was sold to a police magistrate before reaching Edo. Separated, the twins would travel two far-different roads. Follow them as they grow and find love – before tragedy strikes and brings them back together again.
