Music: Excerpted from Gion Shoja by Yoshiko Sakata. Choreography: Sachiyo Ito.

Inspired by The Heike Monogatari (The Tale of the Heike Clan). "The sound of the bell of the Gion Temple echoes impermanence of all things. The pale hue of the flowers of the teak-tree shows the truth that they who prosper must fall. The proud ones do not last long, but vanish like a spring-night's dream. And the mighty ones too will perish in the end, like dust before the wind." - Tr. Paul Varley
