あらすじ This michiyuki dance shows the young woman Shizuka Gozen accompanied by the warrior Saito Tadanobu on their travels through the mountain cherry hills of the Yoshino district. Tadanobu however is actually a fox spirit in disguise, who follows the hand drum carried by Shizuka because its head is made from the hide of his parents. The particular "Tadanobu" dance section involves Tadanobu enacting for Shizuka an account of an earlier battle.

備考 The scene as a whole is Act 4, scene 2 of the kabuki play Yoshitsune and the thousand cherry trees. The title "Tadanobu" is used to name the dance by that character recounting a battle.
