NIKU JUHACHI (Two Nine Eighteen)

A man prays to the Kannon for a wife at Kiyomizu-dera Temple. A woman appears in a divine dream and leaves a poem about the numbers “two nine.” Awake, the man goes in search of the woman’s residence guided by her poem, but …


The cherry trees of Arashiyama (Kyoto), brought from Yoshino (Nara), are in full bloom. An emissary from the emperor meets the caretakers, an old couple, who tell him the trees of Arashiyama are sacred. The couple leave and the gods, Komori and Katsute, appear to dance and welcome the god Zao Gongen. Scripted by Konparu Zenpo, this spectacular play depicts the gods of Yoshino celebrating a glorious spring against backdrop of cherry blossoms.
