Mr Tajimaya, homme d'affaires peu regardant, veut détruire une partie d'un village (qui est d'ailleurs un lieu sacré) pour à la place y construire un bordel, malgré le mécontentement des villageois. Il a hérité de cette terre en faisant jadis affaire avec Jinbei, ex-propriétaire du lieu, lui prêtant de l'argent afin d'acheter des médicaments pour sa femme malade. Jinbei, ne pouvant payer, avait mis en effet son terrain en gage. Profitant du passage d'un magistrat religieux (et corrompu) sans qui le lieu de pèlerinage n'aurait pu être détruit, Tajimaya organise une petite fête atypique: il invite un conteur pour qu'il raconte les "100 Histoires". La tradition veut qu'à chaque histoire, une bougie soit éteinte. Et qu'à la fin de la dernière histoire, tous les convives participent à un rituel pour conjurer le mauvais sort, sans quoi des fantômes et démons apparaîtraient.
