Description
A figure with a white head covering reads from a folded piece of paper, four men surround him in robes and black pointed hats. The play belongs to the category of miscellaneous no plays. The author is unknown. The warrior Minamoto Yoshinaka (1154-84) was raised in the mountainous district of Kiso, Shinano Province; hence his name Kiso Yoshinaka. Yoshinaka gathered troops in Shinano and marched against the Heike clan. Prior to his departure to the front, he celebrated and made a vow to the God of war honored at Hachiman shrine.
