MICHIMORI (The Warrior Michimori)

Hearing that her husband Taira no Michimori has died in battle, his wife Kozaisho drowns herself in sorrow. The spirits of the couple appear before a priest and ask for prayers that they may become buddhas. This is a Shura Noh story of mournful partings and final battles.
