Sekihara Sae is the twin sister of Tae (the manager of the Akabeko in Tokyo). She runs a similar restaurant, called the Shirobeko, in Kyoto. When Kamiya Kaoru and Myojin Yahiko arrive in Kyoto, in search of Himura Kenshin (who is in pursuit of Shishio Makoto), they decide to stay at the Shirobeko, where they work. When Makimachi Misao comes in the Shirobeko, she informs them that Kenshin stayed with her for a while, before leaving and they ultimately find Kenshin with his master Hiko Seijūrō. After the battle with Shishio ends, the Kyoto Oniwabanshū and Kenshingumi come to lodge in the Shirobeko during the reconstruction of the Aoiya, and for a few weeks, the group celebrates continuously over their victory in her establishment (much to her dismay and Masukami's worry), before Kenshin's full recovery and consciousness.
