It’s November and winter is just around the corner. Aoi Mashiro continues to work at the antique store Kura in Kyoto’s Teramachi-Sanjo shopping district, alongside the owner’s grandson, Kiyotaka Yagashira. Nicknamed “Holmes,” he’s a young Kyoto man with a bit of a wicked streak.
One day they’re visited by a famous kabuki actor named Kisuke Ichikata. Minamiza Theatre’s annual grand show is coming up in December and Kisuke has received a threatening letter. The next day, Kiyotaka and Aoi go to watch him on stage, where he suffers a serious injury. Unrequited love, illicit affairs, hidden feelings—the mysteries continue through Christmas and New Year’s in Volume 3 of Holmes of Kyoto!
