Handlung Minamoto Yoshitsune (kokata) and his followers are waiting for the ship at the shore of Daimotsu. Before they depart, Benkei advises Yoshitsune to leave his consort, Shizuka, behind because it is inconvenient to bring along a woman. Yoshitsune obliges. Shizuka bids farewell by presenting Yoshitsune with an elegant dance. After Shizuka leaves, Benkei has an interesting exchange with the boatman on the weather and their crossing. When the party is in the middle of the river, the spirit of Tomomori appears. He has come to revenge his family’s defeat and attempts to drown Yoshitsune. Benkei saves the party by chanting rosary and finally pacifies the spirit.
