Object Description
A priest travels to Suma Bay and meets the ghosts of Matsukaze and Murasama, two sisters who once gathered salt from these waters. Many consider this play to be the most poetic of all Noh plays. This print depicts Matsukaze gazing into her pail of brine, fascinated by the moon’s reflection in the water. The Chorus sings, “Here too the moon is caught... With moon and brine, our toil forgotten, we enjoy our journey home.”
