NotesApparently there is a series of films starring Zatoichi, the blind swordsman. In this film he meets Jumonji who is a samurai and a good chess player. They travel together and take a ship bound for Enoshima. In a dice game on board they take all the money from some gangsters. Ashore they are ambushed by the gangsters and in the fight (all swordplay) a young girl is injured. The noble Zatoichi wins enough money to pay for her treatment. For more details of Zatoichi see below "Showdown for Zatoichi".
