Yamamichi written by Toshiko Tamura draws the inner conflicts of the woman in love instead of the conflicts between men and women frequently shown in her other novels. Despite Toshiko expressed her regret to Ineko Sata, she had a chance to expect love Etsu Suzuki again supported by Tsurujiro Kubokawa. One day, she met a couple working together on her way from the mountain and reflected the days with Etsu. Spontaneously, she truely understood that current man did not fulfill the love from Etsu. The scene of the mountain road illustrates the way Toshiko had experienced in her life and it can be said that the novel is her biography with connotations.
