Synopsis and emphasis
The Sanbasou dance is derived from Nou's "Okina" and is one of the main dances in kabuki. As the name states, it resembles the victory dance for when Hideyoshi Taiko had taken down the Osaka castle.
In 2012, second generation Kamejiro Ichikawa was succeeded by fourth generation Ennosuke Ichikawa who then passed on the name to ninth generation Ichikawa Chusha. Ennosuke's succeeding of this name was of great importance to the Omodakaya family, where he is to go greet everyone in all locations to celebrate his succession.
Mohei Komagata, who had failed to become a sumo wrestler in Edo, receives blessing from Torideshuku's Shakufu Otsuta, and promises once again to train to become a Yokozuna. 10 years later. Mohei, who's appearance had completely changed, returns to Torideshuku to seek Otsuta. But Otsuta fails to remember him. Mohei eventually stands up to ward off Otsuta's husband, Namiichizato Gijyuu and his minions. But Otsuta... This piece is Shin Hasegawa's best piece and is his masterpiece depicting the subtleties of human nature.
