TESSENKAI Regular Performance in July


Revival Noh Shigehira Asai Fumiyasu

Kyogen Bunka Nomura Man

Noh Kokaji Tanimoto Kengo



A traveling monk who has been touring the country visits Narasaka in the Southern Capital on a tranquil spring day. A mysterious old man appears and tells the monk about the magnificent Buddhist temples such as the Great Buddha Hall of Todaiji Temple, Saidaiji Temple, Hokkeji Temple, and Kofukuji Temple, and asks the monk to pray for the soul of Taira Shigehira, who died here, before disappearing.

Soon, the spirit of Shigehira appears in armor to mourn the monk, and he tells him about his final moments, when he was captured at the Battle of Ichinotani and executed at Kizugawa River, and shows him the suffering of the world of asura...

Unlike other Shura Noh plays that depict elegant nobles and brave warriors, this one depicts the deep anguish and repentance of Shigehira, who burned down Nara.

Since its revival in 1983 by Hashi no Kai with Asami Masakuni as the shite, this revived Noh play has been repeatedly performed.


Fumi ninai

Two servants are ordered by their master to deliver a love letter addressed to a young boy. The two unwilling servants make fun of their master's infatuation with the young boy, and because they don't want to carry the letter, they tie it to a bamboo pole, saying that the letter is heavy even though it isn't even that heavy, and carry it together...

A parody Kyogen play that incorporates elements of the Noh play "Koi ojou ni."



Upon receiving an imperial command to present a sacred sword, Sanjo Munechika visits Inari Shrine in search of someone to help him forge the sword. A young boy appears, praises the sword's power, and promises Munechika his assistance.

Soon, Inari Shrine appears dashing, forges the sword together with Munechika, presents it to the imperial envoy, and then leaps onto a cloud of clouds to depart.

The small writing of "Kurozu" is a profound production that emphasizes the beast-like nature of the shrine.
