Mishito intimidated the villagers of the town where he lived to ensure that they would pay exorbitant taxes to their master, Tobu. When Miyamoto Usagi prepared a ruse that ghosts in the forest sought revenge against Tobu, Mishito was suspicious of the rabbit ronin. He went to investigate the ghosts and discovered that they were just paper lanterns hung in the forest, and captured Jotaro in the process. Usagi rescued Jotaro and fled into the forest on horseback, pursued by Mishito and the other guards. Michito's skills were not equal to those of Usagi, and he was slain by him.
