A group of yamabushi mountain priests meet a woman in a snowstorm on Mount Kazuraki.
観世喜之
The woman lets the pitiful-looking priests shelter at her hermitage.
喜多六平太
A fire is lit. As they talk, it grows late.
観世銕之亟、他
The woman admits to the priests that she is the deity of Mount Kazuraki.
観世喜之
Long ago, the deity failed to keep a promise. As a punishment, she is still bound in vines.
観世銕之亟
While the priests pray to relieve her suffering, the deity starts to dance.
鵜沢久
In the moonlight, she calmly dances. The dance is graceful.
三川泉
The pure white of the falling snow is like that of an offering.
津村礼次郎
Over there, the mountain of Ama-no-kagu-yama can be seen. The moon is white, the snow is white. Everywhere, the world is white.
渡邊三郎
The deity is ashamed of her ugly face amid such sparkling radiance. Before the day breaks, she enters her room.
