In 1165 the Unicorn attacked the City of the Rich Frog, and Juro conscripted any ronin who were inside the city to defend it. Utagawa was one of the ronin, and they were at odds from an incident the day before. When Shinjo attacked one of the gates, Juro hung back, looking around for others to command into the fight in his place. Utagawa mocked his behaviour and Juro dueled her, being badly wounded by the swordmaster. A Shinjo arrow killed him.
