Prince Hayabusawake's Rebellion
The first half of the 5th century. In the vast lands of Ishitsunohara in Kawachi the giant imperial tomb for Oosazaki no Ookimi is being constructed. He was a great king with powerful influence and many things in his control, but there was one thing that he was never able to do. That was to gain the love of the Princess Medori.
Previously, the king sent out his younger brother, Prince Hayabusawake, as a messenger to meet with Medori, but the two young people fell in love at first sight and Medori rejected the king. However, the king doesn't realize what his brother has done and sends to Medori his feelings. Iwanohime no Ookisaki also works to split the king from Medori.
Meanwhile, Hayabusa has two brothers from a different mother, Ojika and Yatsukaho. Their mother was a slave, but they are now Hayabusa's loyal subordinates and Ojika, who secretly loves Hayabusa, dreams of the day when he will accend to the throne.
At last, the king sent Hayabusa to Ki-no-Kuni, and during his absence carried off Medori. Medori had a lady servant, Yatsukaho's lover Tooko, who had followed after Hayabusa. As soon as she learns what has happened she feels that it was her responsibility, and cries in Yatsukaho's arms.
Hayabusa is angered by the king's foul play. "Now if the time for rebellion," he decides, and gathering hot-headed followers he quickly returns to the palace. Hayabusa regains Medori, but Yatsukaho is wounded in the battle.
Hayabusa and Medori flee deep into the moutnains, but the king sends his armies after them. Out of strength and options, Hayabusa holds Medori and they turn to watch the sun rise. "Now we are imose＊," he swears. The two sing of love while their enemies' arrows fly towards them....
