This is a Waki Noh-Mono* written by Zeami based on the legend of Yourou Waterfalls listed in Jikkinshou, a collection of stories from the Kamakura Period (the end of the 12th century to the mid 14th century).
The Emperor Yuryaku, who heard that a miraculous fountain has sprung up in Mino Province, sends an imperial messenger.
The messenger descends to the place and meets an old man and his son (Shite・Tsure) who named the miraculous fountain "Yourou."
The messenger asks the reason for it and they say the old man was healed both physically and mentally after drinking the water from the fountain and that made him pleased.
The son also tells the messenger he was bestowed this wonder-working fountain because he took good care of his father and he guides the messenger to the fountain. Furthermore, the old man cites the proverb related to longevity and water and praises the water.
Then, a sound of music starts around the waterfall and the flowers start falling down from the sky and the extraordinary atmosphere surrounds the area.
Before long, Yamagami, a god of a mountain, (Ato Shite) appears and praises the peace reign of the emperor and goes back to heaven dancing along with Shinto music.
The healing water means sake, and this is a celebrational performance featuring the joy and the devotion to the miraculous fountain.
.* Waki Noh-Mono
When Noh-plays are categorized depending on the plot, this is the one featuring God and celebrates the peace that reigns in the country.
By categorizing depending on the plot, it is about the role of Shite.
There are also “Man, Woman, Maniac, Demon” and these are collectively called “Gobandate”.
An ancient curse in Japan, Ushi no Koku Maori. "Ushi no koku" indicates the time period from 1am to 3am, and a person uses a straw doll to resemble someone he or she hates and curses them to death over 7days.
An oracle from a god is sent to a woman (Mae Shite), in the service of Ushi no Koku Mairi, wanting to be a demon and holding a grudge against her husband who abandoned her and married another woman. The oracle said she can become a demon god if she wears a red kimono, paints her face red, wears an iron ring on her head with three lit candles upright, and holds a raging heart.
"You said, like forever-lasting flowers of camellia, we won't be parted like two buds of pine and this feeling won't change, but then why did you abandon me? Oh, curses upon you." The woman turns into a devoted demon (Ato Shite) and heads for her husband.
Meanwhile, the husband (Waki Tsure) has recently been having a bad dream and goes to *Abe No Seimei (Waki) for advice.
The Seimei foresees that the man's life will only last for tonight since the woman's grudge is deep. Seimei sets the offerings on the high shelf separated into three levels and summons Sanjubanshin (the thirty gods who protect the country or the lotus sutra taking turns each day of the month).
*Abe no Seimei
An onmyoji who actually existed in Japan (Kyoto) in the 10th century. Onmyoji is someone who practices fortune-telling and rituals. Seimei was also an astrologist and his power was acknowledged widely, then he became the founder of the Abe clan who unified the Bureau of Onmyo which was in charge of the compilation of fortune-telling, astronomy, time and calendar until the 19th century. After his death, Seimei Shrine, which worships Abe no Seimei, was built on the site of his house by the order of Emperor Ichijo. (Now exisiting, Ichijo Horikawa）.
