Plays DataBase Tsunemasa : PhotoStory StoryDataPhotoStory
 

Ninna-ji Temple, Kyoto. In the deep of the night, the lamplight shows the figure of the ghost of a samurai.
桜間右陣
It is Taira no Tsunemasa, who fell in battle with the Minamoto clan.
金剛巌
He appeared during a memorial service at Ninna-ji Temple, where he spent his childhood. Everything here brings back memories.
観世銕之丞
Tsunemasa was an accomplished biwa player. Sōzu Gyōkei consoles him with music.
武田喜永、植田隆之亮
The Seizan biwa lute that Tsunemasa played so well is here too. In the moonlight, lost in memories, he enjoys the performance and dances.
武田喜永
His thoughts linger on the different tones of the biwa.
墨敬子
Wonderful, wonderful! I don’t want the fun to end.
観世栄夫
On the other hand, there is still anger in my heart. In war, you change into something despicable.
後藤得三、野口敦弘
Such shame! So that others cannot see his despicable figure, the ghost puts out the light and returns to the darkness.
