Intrigue Kudo Suketsune is an enemy of the Soga brothers, Juro and Goro, whose father, Kawadu Saburo, was killed by him. It happens that Kudo is ordered by Yoritomo Minamoto to lead a hunting expedition at the foot of Mt. Fuji. All manner of people come to Kudo's house to congratulate him. Spotting an opportunity, Asahina Saburo, who is in service to Kudo, but sympathetic to the Soga brothers' desire for revenge, manages for the Soga brothers to meet Kudo. Kudo arrogantly promises them the opportunity for their revenge after the hunting expedition, giving them passes for the hunting field.
Notes One-act period piece (Jidaimono). It was first performed at Nakamura Za in Edo in January, 1676. Kawatake Mokuami developed the style in Meiji. It is also called "Kichirei kotobuki no soga."
