「通小町」 Kayoikomachi

At the western foot of Mt.Hiei in the village of Yase, there was a monk who was devoting himself to basket for three months in the summer. There was also having a woman who delivered nuts and firewood every day. So, when the monk asked for her name at the end of the question and answer, the woman disappeared, implying that she was Ono no Komachi. When the monk who went to the Ichihara field enthusiastically chanted sutra, the spirit of Komachi reappeared with joy in turning around. However, behind that there was another spirit who was thin and weak and moaned “Don’t mourn Komachi, please go home”. Moreover, if you look at the place where you cling to Kamikocho, this is exactly the spirit of Admiral Fukakusa. During the period of his lifetime, the Major General who continued to attend every night in Komachi which is known as “If you will go through a hundred nights_Hyakuya” died unfulfilled on the 99th day. So we said the grudge showed that he was going to a hundred nights in his lifetime but due to the transfer of the monk the two spirits eventually joined hands and became Buddhahood.

「清 経」 Kiyotsune

Kiyotsune Sachu was defeated in the battle of Tsukushi, lost hope of the peace, he thought that it would be better than the hands of the soldiers. He threw himself from the night boat off the coast in Buzen Yanagi into the ditch and committed suicide. The play talked about the final situation of Saburo Awazu who is a vassal who goes up to the capital with the hair of the sword left in the boat, and visits Kiyotsune’s wife.  The wife is a warrior or sick, she regrets her husband that he had entered the water by himself, she said “every time I see it, if I see it, I will return to the original place, I will always miss you” even if it’s a dream of sleeping, she has been dozing with tears, hoping to meet him. Then the ghost of Kiyotsune appeared crazy in her dream perhaps because she is understood by him with all his heart. It is called that the spirit is not able to he wants to return the keepsake that he gave to her and his wife blames her husband for suicide.  In the meantime, the husband talks about what he was doing and tries to comfort his resentment. Because having of the story that when Emperor Antoku’s party visited Usa Hachiman, a lot of people make an oracle that “What do you pray for the world without a god”, so they were realized to be very long-lasting and finally threw themselves, the spirit who spoke in such a detailed story but suddenly shows the suffering of Shurado. The rain turns into an arrow and the soil looks terrifying with forests of Tsurugi but in fact he was able to get rid of Buddhahood because of the undisturbed Nembutsu at the end.

「小鍛冶」 Kokaji

Ichijoin, who was made to receive a mysterious spirit, was sent to Sanjo Kokani Munechika (Waki)’s private house with Tachibana Michinari (Wakizure) as an imperial messenger. It is a task to forge a special sword. Munechika thinks that we are important but we are not able to do that, so we should rent God’s power. It is the reason to go to the Inari Myojin Shrine. However, having a mysterious child (Shite) on the road and Munechika had called him and talk that “nothing need to suffer yourself, you are give your life to force sword, aren’t it?”, and he talked about the prestige of the famous Japanese in Kanji (Chinese character) and also talked about the face that Takeru Nihon flattened Dongyi with Kusanagi’s sword. Moreover, when he got home and prepared, he thought he would change my power and help you and he suddenly disappeared at Mt. Inari in Yugumo (Middle). When Munechika who returned with surprise built an altar and broke his heart and prayed, Inari Myojin (later Shite) appeared in the form of a virgin. Munechika who rejoices hits the hammer of teaching as soon as Myojin also hits it. In this way, the sword was immediately stroked together, but the front is inscribed as a small blacksmith and the back is inscribed as a competing small fox, and the sword is dedicated to the imperial messenger.  These are the first two swords of inscriptions in the world, if you rule the four seas with this, there is no doubt that the five grains will be fulfilled.  When Myoujn said so, he jumped on Murakumo again and left for Mt. Inari.
