Isawa Nosuriko was a beautiful young maiden who was engaged to Doji Kuwanan on the day of his gempukku. The night before their wedding however she hung herself in her chamber, leaving no note or reason. Kuwanan however believed the fault lay with Matsu Hiroru, his bitter rival from training with the Lion Clan. Hiroru had never relented in his advances towards the girl.

|Way of the Crane, p. 81 named Kuwanan's betrothed as Shiba Nosuriko. But Way of the Lion page 73 and Merchant's Guide to Rokugan page 85 named it Isawa. --Oni no Pikachu 13:46, February 25, 2012 (UTC)|
