The summer brings a change in Takuji’s condition. His family and several villagers gather. His mother notices a dust-devil and announces that Takuji’s spirit has left his body. They try to call the spirit back, but to no avail. Takuji is dead.
After the performance of a Noh play, Tia walks alone into the forest. She spends the night in an abandoned hut. Meanwhile Kamimura, looking at the full moon, senses that Takuji has returned to the mountains…
