He saw beautiful robes next to him which were the finest he had ever seen. He greedily took one of them and went home. The Tennyo whose gossamer robe was taken by the fisherman couldn't go back to Heaven. She went to the fisherman's home and pleaded for her gossamer robe, but the fisherman pretended that he knew nothing. Tennyo soon married the fisherman, and gave birth to a child.
