C'est alors à sa jeune veuve, Miyuki, de le remplacer pour porter jusqu'à la capitale les carpes arrachées aux remous de la rivière Kusagawa. Chaussée de sandales de paille, courbée sous la palanche à laquelle sont suspendus ses viviers à poissons, riche seulement de quelques poignées de riz, Miyuki entreprend un périple de plusieurs centaines de kilomètres à travers forêts et montagnes, passant de temple en maison de rendez-vous, affrontant les orages et les séismes, les attaques de brigands et les trahisons de ses compagnons de route, la cruauté des maquerelles et la fureur des kappa, monstres aquatiques qui jaillissent de l'eau pour dévorer les entrailles des voyageurs. Mais la mémoire des heures éblouissantes vécues avec l'homme qu'elle a tant aimé, et dont elle est certaine qu'il chemine à ses côtés, donnera à Miyuki le pouvoir de surmonter les tribulations les plus insolites, et de rendre tout son prestige au vieux maître du Bureau des Jardins et des Étangs." -- cover
