Dojoji: 1

Standard

Precisely, 京鹿子娘道成寺=kyoganoko-musume-dojoji. It is based on a 能=noh featuring Legend of 安珍=anchin and 清姫=kiyohime. 安珍 was a handsome monk visited 熊野 Shrine. He stayed for a night at 清姫’s home who fell in love with him at first sight. He refused her, running away to hide under a big bell of nearby 道成寺. Furious 清姫 changed into a fire-breathing dragon and burned him to death. Hundreds of years later, 道成寺 monks constructed a new bell.
