Based on the success of Yojimbo, Kurosawa's next movie, Sanjuro (1962), was altered to include the protagonist of this movie.   In both movies, the character wears a rather shabby dark robe birthing the same family mon (most likely the symbol of his previous samurai clan, before he ended up being a rōnin).
In 1860, throughout the final years of the Tokugawa shogunate, [a] a masterless samurai wanders with a barren Japanese countryside. While stopping at a farmhouse, he hears a senior couple lamenting their only son has actually surrendered ranch labouring in order to run off and also join the rogues that have descended on a nearby community that has come to be divided by a gang war. The unfamiliar person heads to the community where he fulfills the owner of a small Izakaya who suggests him to leave. He tells the rōnin that both warring clans are led by Ushitora and also Seibei. The silk vendor and mayor back Seibei while the benefit maker is allied with Ushitora. However after measuring the situation, the unfamiliar person states he intends to stay as the community would certainly be better off with both sides dead.
He initially persuades the weak Seibei to employ him as a swordsman by easily eliminating three of Ushitora's males. When asked his name, he sees a mulberry area and mentions his name is 桑畑三十郎 (Kuwabatake Sanjuro?) (桑畑 (mulberry shrub?). Although 三十郎 Sanjuro is an appropriate offered name (and therefore might extremely well be the rōnin's true name), when spoken out loud it can likewise be interpreted as 三十老 Sanjuro (keep in mind the different last kanji 老), which means "thirty years of ages" (三十 sanju = thirty, 老 ro = years-old)). Familiar with this double entendre (and that those he's talking with understand that he made use of Kuwabatake as a pseudo-surname), he slyly quips: "Though I'm closer to forty, really".
Seibei determines that with the ronin's swordsmanship (a company obtained with a large repayment in Ryō) the moment is ideal to combat Ushitora. However Sanjuro eavesdrops on Seibei's better half who buys her son to eliminate him after the upcoming raid so that they will not need to pay his charge. Sanjuro leads his intrigue to attack the other but then "resigns" leaving Seibei to his destiny. Yet prior to the two side clash, the unforeseen arrival of a Bugyō (an Edo official) forces both sides to make a bloodless retreat.
Ultimately the Bugyō is called away since a government official was murdered in another town. Sanjuro soon learns it was 2 assassins employed by Ushitora who committed the murder in order to get the authorities to leave. With this knowledge, Sanjuro captures both of killers and markets them to Seibei. But he after that informs Ushitora that it was Seibei's men have captured them. An alarmed Ushitora benefits him for his help. Ushitora then orders the kidnaping of Seibei's kid who he provides for both detainees. Nevertheless, Ushitora double crosses Seibei at the swap when his brother, Unosuke, fires the assassins with a pistol. But Seibei expected this so he abducted Ushitora's lady. The following early morning she is switched with Seibei's son.
Sanjuro discovers that the female is the other half of a local farmer who lost her to Ushitora over a wagering debt, that after that provided her away as capital to the town's effective locals in order to obtain their support. Sanjuro informs Ushitora that Seibei is on the method to kidnap her from her secret hideaway. While Ushitora rallies his men, Sanjuro eliminates all six guards. He then reunites the lady with her spouse and young boy and tells them to leave town. Nonetheless, Unosuke comes to be questionable of Sanjuro and also the ransacked building. Ultimately Sanjuro is badly beaten after Unosuke uncovers evidence of his dual cross.
