Princess Takiyasha, the daughter of Tairo no Makasado, traverses through the snow on Mt. Tsukuba. After a failed revolt against the emperor, Makasado was beheaded and his entire family ordered to be assassinated. All were killed except for his son and daughter. Eventually, the children encounter the sage Nikushisen who reveals their lineage and bestows them with a magical scroll detailing his particular brand of occult magic, frog sorcery. With these new found abilities, Princess Takiyasha vows to avenge her father and rises up against the Emperor with a demonic force of ghosts and demons known as yokai. Despite her supernatural powers, Princess Takiyasha suffers the same fate as her father when her attempt is foiled by Ōya no Tarō Mitsukuni, a warrior also versed in the esoteric.
