Summary

WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!


Mugenka Emaki


A Takarazuka Japanese-style revue with a characteristic theme of flowers of the four seasons, overflowing with the beauty and gentleness of Japan. The curtain rises and it begins with a suitably gorgeous and luxureous dance of the entire cast. The show itself is an emotionally rich revue with dancing and singing, composed around the "peony", a model for China, the national flower of Japan, the "cherry blossom", Takarazuka's flower, the "violet", the "wisteria", the "hibiscus", and others.
