“Takasago” is a piece of Yôkyoku. On his way to Kyôto, a shintô priest of a shrine in Aso encountered an old man and an old woman who were sweeping fallen leaves under twin pine trees at Takasago. The man was from Sumiyoshi, the woman is from Takasago. They became a couple after long years of visiting each other. After they told the priest that the two were actually the spirits of pine tree of Sumiyoshi and Takasago, they vanished.”
