【Story Outline】
On a moonlit autumn night, a traveling monk visits the Ariwara temple where the poet Ariwara-no-Narihira and his wife used to live in this area.
A village woman appears and describes the love story between Narihira and Ki-no-Aritsune's daughter.
As her story ends, the woman says that she is the daughter, and then she disappears.
That evening, the ghost of the daughter who appears in the monk's dream dances wearing the clothing that Narihira left behind.
The ghost stares at her reflection in the well water and remembers of sweet days with him.
When dawn comes, the ghost disappears.
This program is one of Zeami's masterpieces, representative of the Mugen(dream and illusion) style in which past and present events merge.
Old days with Narihira are talked heartily in the first half.
In the latter half, the daughter's dance, and the scene seeing an image of Narihira on oneself who is reflected in the well, are the highlights
