Shiyokumi means salt collector. While a peasant girl is out collecting salt from the sea , a Samurai War Lord is returning from battle on his horse along the seafront. They fall in love but since she is from a different class their love can never be consummated, so he gives her his Eboshi (hat) as a token of his love and his green cloak before he rides off.
