Plays DataBase Atsumori : PhotoStory StoryDataPhotoStory
 

Like the singing of the wild wind, a grass cutter plays a tune on his flute. Rensei notices the beauty of the music.
木月孚行、他
The grass cutter has ties to Atsumori. To mourn the young man he himself has killed, Rensei prays to Amida Buddha.
本間英孝
“Even without my name being said, you know, don't you?” The person who speaks is not a grass cutter but Atsumori. During the prayer for the repose of the soul, he vanishes.
津村礼次郎
Atsumori visits Rensei in a dream. He is the warrior of old, the young Heike nobleman.

本間英孝
In the dream of Rensei - the enemy Kumagai no Jirō Naozane - the thought of Atsumori is to dance.
