Outline of Story “Atsumori”
It tells the story of the reunion of the ghost of Atsumori, a young warrior who lost his life in the Battle of Ichinotani, and Kumagai Jiro Naozane, who killed him.
Naozane took the head of Atsumori, who was 16 or 17 years old, about the same age as his own child, but took this opportunity to enter
the priesthood and become Rensho Hosshi.
The first half begins with a scene in which Rensho Hosshi, who mourns Atsumori’s soul, meets Atsumori’s ghost.
The second half of the play expresses the fate of the Heike clan’s downfall, memories of playing with the orchestra in the Heike camp
on the eve of the battle, and the scene when Atsumori was killed.
Atsumori and Rensho Hosshi, who had been enemies during their lifetimes, eventually became “Friends of Buddhist laws”, depicting the
joy of being freed from loneliness and gaining mutual friends.
