能「天鼓 弄鼓之舞」






  Noh “Shunkan”

A priest who actually existed in the 12th century.

He was exiled to Kikaigashima Island on a charge of participating in a secret conference to destroy a clan of Taira no Kiyomori, an authority at that time. The plot of this Noh is based on the story after Shunkan was exiled to Kikaigashima.

The three people, Shunkan, Naritsune and Yasuyori, who were exiled with him, use water to resemble sake and live together deploring their current circumstances.

Meanwhile, there was an amnesty granted due to a prayer for a safe delivery for Taira no Kiyomori’s daughter, Tokuko, who became an empress.

A messenger arrives on the island and shows the letter of amnesty; however, only Shunkan’s name is not there. The messenger departs from the ship with the two who were granted amnesty, cruelly leaving Shunkan who is in a panic and begs.

This is a performance which provides the impression of left-behind Shunkan’s desperation, pity and humanity’s weakness.



Written by: Zeami

A man (Waki) comes to *Dainenbutsu held in Saga Seiryouji Temple with a boy (Kokata) he picked up.Then, the man asks the gate keeper (Ai) to show them something interesting and the gate keeper thinks an insane woman, Hyakuman, would be good; therefore, he calls her. Hyakuman was in an insane state since she once was bereaved of her husband and was separated from her son.

As Hyakuman recites the Buddhist prayer, she expresses the feelings for her son in a frantic status and prays to Buddha.

The boy sees her dancing and realizes she is his mother, and the mother and the son reunite. Hyakuman sobs tears of pleasure and returns to Nara with her child.

Hyakuman is a female performer who was famous for recitative dance. This is a Noh performance, featuring Hyakuman, in which a mother who seeks for her child shows different kinds of arts in spring Sagano.


This is an event in which people gather and recite Buddhist prayers.

It is said that Dainenbutsu held in Saga Seiryouji Temple started in 1279 and it is also said that many people “hoped as high as clouds and gathered like stars”.


Noh “Tenko Rouko no Mai” 

In China, at the time of the Later Han Dynasty (25-220), there was a couple named Ouhaku and Oubo. Oubo names her born child “Tenko” since she saw a dream of a drum falling from the sky. (In Japanese “ten” means the sky, heaven, divine and etc. and “ko” means a drum.) Later, a real drum falls from the sky and the sound of it was so beautiful that it reached the emperor’s ears. The emperor orders Tenko to present the drum to him, but Tenko feels reluctant to part with the drum and hides in the deep mountain with the drum.

Before long, the located Tenko is sunken in the river Rosui, and the drum is sent to the Imperial Palace. However, no matter who strikes the drum, it won’t make a sound. The emperor summons the father Ouhaku to the Imperial Palace as an imperial commander, and orders him to strike the drum. Ouhaku refuses but it’s not accepted; therefore, he strikes the drum in sorrow thinking of his child, then the drum that wouldn’t make a sound now makes a beautiful sound. The emperor is touched by the love of this father and son, gives Ouhaku a treasure and sends him home, then decides to hold a funeral for Tenko in Kangenko (a Buddhist memorial service with music).

Tenko who disobeyed the imperial decree and was sunken in divine punishment appears on the surface of the water due to the appreciation for the funeral.

Then he strikes the drum for the appreciation of the reign, dances to the music and disappears at the crack of dawn.
