WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!
Long, long ago, a pond called Yashagaike dried up. The village headman sacrificed his daughter to the dragon god who dwelled in the pond, and the rains returned to the village....
In the middle Meiji Period, Iyobe Kiyohiko, a houseboy for the industrialist Shimamura family, was telling ghost stories with his friends when the tale of Yashagaike was told. Kiyohiko then set out for the pond to put his courage to the test, when he encountered a girl being set upon by brigands. When Kiyohiko saved the girl, she brought him to the dragon god's castle (Tatsunomiya) at the bottom of the pond as a thank you. The girl Kiyohiko had rescued was the dragon god princess Tama-hime. For saving the princess, Kiyohiko was owed a great deal and treated courteously, and while living a life of pomp and splendor in the palace he was charmed by the princess's bewitching beauty. After many days had passed, Kiyohiko informed the princess that he wished to return to the surface, to his friends and to the young lady Yuriko of the Shimamura family who he was in love with.
After 105 years, Takarazuka returns to the tale of the youth and the dragon princess which it originally told in "Urashima Tarou."
- Bow Hall debut work for Sashida Shuko.
