Plays DataBase Hagoromo (Celestial Feather Robe) : PhotoStory StoryDataPhotoStory
 

A beautiful robe has been left on a pine branch. Hakuryō, a simple and unrefined fisherman, is captivated. Without thinking, he takes it to carry home.
宝生閑
The forlorn figure of the celestial maiden whose feather robe has been taken is despairing and pitiful.
観世喜之
"Please return it," asks the celestial maiden. Without powers, she can only yearn for the faraway heavens. But even her soft voice does not move Hakuryō.
逸見漢子、鏑木岑男
The innocence and beauty of the celestial maiden is truly touching. Hakuryō is ashamed of himself. Wearing the returned robe, the celestial maiden presents a divine figure.
津村礼次郎
The dignified dancing figure of the celestial maiden paints the spring colors of Miho-no-Matsubara.
津村礼次郎
It is as if the whole dance lives in the sleeves of the feather robe, performing the way of the Palace of the Moon.
観世喜之
As the full moon shines brightly, her robe trailing in the wind, the celestial maiden returns to the Palace of the Moon.
