Beginning with a close-up of Shishi-odoshi, means a deer scarer in Japanese, the scene changes into a Japanese-style room called Washitsu. There, a young lady and a man quietly sit face to face with a table between them. Then, a middle-aged woman starts introducing the lady, namely her daughter, listing her specialties and hobbies; the Japanese art of flower arrangement called Ikebana or Kado, the Japanese tea ceremony known as Chado or Sado, dressmaking, tennis, golf and Mahjong game. This part, especially the latter 3 activities, remarkably represents the life and culture of young female in those days. The contrast between a calm background music performed by Koto and the hectic lines of these characters effectively enhances its atmosphere of a comedy.
