Takasago is a traditional Noh play. It is considered a very auspicious story, involving a loving and long-married couple.
A priest from the Kyushu Aso Shrine arrives at Takasago. The spring weather is pleasant and the pine trees are beautiful. An elderly couple arrive and begin to sweep the area under the pine bower. The old man recites a poem from the Kokin Wakashū, a collection of waka poetry. The poem describes Takasago and Sumioe wedded pines, paired pine trees that, according to legend, will remain together for eternity.

Original tomobako included.
