Okō and Seiji own and run the Izumo-ya lending shop in the Fukagawa district of Edo. Several of the items they lend are old and have become tsukumogami. Seiji is clever and, with the help of the tsukumogami, has a reputation for being able to solve mysteries and other difficult problems. One of those mysteries is the whereabouts of Satarō, a man who was once interested in Okō despite being engaged to another woman.
