18 year old monk and con-artist named Miroku is tasked by a feudal lord to exorcise a demon who posed as a Buddha statue with a Shikon fragment. Miroku pillages the lord and pawns off his goods. Meanwhile, Inuyasha, Kagome and Shippō are on their journey and Inuyasha thinks about Kikyō's fate, and Kagome ponders about her experience with Urasue which leaves her questioning why Inuyasha and Kikyō become enemies. That night, Miroku bathes in a hot spring, lamenting the small amount of money he made pawning off the stolen goods. From a distance, he sees Kagome wearing her Shikon Jewel necklace in the bath. He plots to steal it from her.
