Once upon a time, There is a young Ama named Miyo in a village by the Ise sea.
In the Ise sea, there is a monster called Tomokazuki, who scared Ama.
If you really want the abalone, ask the monster to attach it to your back.’
‘What should I do? If it goes on like this, I’m running out of money to buy foods.
Although the family stopped her, she rowed the small boat into the stormy sea.
No matter how much she dives, there are neither the abalone nor the turban shell.
‘I can’t do this anymore here. Find other places’
‘Oh dear, good girl. You’re diving on such a stormy day. Please take this abalone with you.’
‘What a nice Ama she is.’
Miyo was glad to receive the abalone by hand.
At that moment, the elder Ama grinned and grabbed her wrist strongly.
‘I’ve got the sacrifice finally. I can rest in peace now.’
‘Oh no! She is Tomokazuki!’
Miyo struggled to escape, unfortunately she sank into the bottom of the sea.
It is also said that Miyo has become Tomokazuki in the sea and she has been waiting the other Ama coming along to be the scapegoat for her.
