Oiwa お岩 lost her parents at a very young age. That's when she started seeing lingering spirits. She had an one sided love to [[Terada Tatsugorou]], this caused a rivalry between her and Otose but she loses to Otose.
 
Later she met her husband Tagosaku and would later create a hot springs bath deep within the mountains to try and give the lingering spirits a place of comfort and rest before they went to the afterlife. She originally ran it with her husband, and an orphan named Rei, but now only runs it with Rei who has become a lingering spirit.
