Plays DataBase Fuji (Wisteria) : PhotoStory StoryDataPhotoStory
 

By the coastal lagoon at Tagonoura, a traveling monk sees beautiful blossoming wisteria and an old poem comes to his lips.
野口敦弘
The poem is not one in praise of wisteria. A woman appears and scolds him for this.
金剛巌
The woman reveals to the monk that she is the spirit of the wisteria and then vanishes.
金剛巌
In the middle of the night, the spirit of the wisteria appears before the sleeping monk near the lagoon.
金剛巌
Amid the dangling wisteria reflected beautifully in the lagoon, the spirit of the wisteria dances.
梅若万紀夫
The time of dreams passes slowly and peacefully.
観世喜正
The exquisite dancing sleeve is infused with fragrant purple.
観世銕之丞(暁夫)
Finally, it is dawn. In the haze of the morning sun, the spirit of the wisteria vanishes.
