    Ozu’s 20th film. It stars Tokihiko Okada (the father of CJS Toyota Visiting Professor, Mariko Okada) in his third collaboration with Ozu. Okajima, a well-known fencing master, thanks to his menacing beard, frightens everyone and makes it difficult for himself to find a job or meet women. One day, he rescues a girl named Hiroko while she is being threatened by hoodlums. Following Hiroko’s advice, Okajima shaves his beard, which reveals his handsome face. The change in his appearance helps him to find a job; he even gets asked out by three women.
