An old man, being rowed along a river, sees a field of daisies (or Wild Chrysanthemums, as they are described in the title, or starworts, as they are referred to in the subtitles), and thinks back to when he was fifteen. He recalls his time with, and away from, the girl cousin he grew up with and would have married, except the family and other pressures got in the way. Written by

Did You Know?
Kane, you're acting awfully happy about the outcome. But you're Tamiko's mother.
What are you saying, Grandma?
Can't you understand how Tamiko's feeling?
Aren't you happy about this?
Of course I'm happy. Very joyous. But I want to tell you something. I turned 60 this year. When I look back on my life of 60 years, the happiest moment was when I married Grandpa who's no longer with us. That moment alone was worth being alive in this world. The rest of the events in my life pale in comparison.
