    Heroic Mountain God

    Nakamura Kantaro, a 20 year old kabuki actor, plays a heroic mountain god with supernatural powers in Momiji-gari. Kabuki, Japan's most famous classical theatre, has a history of about 400 years. It began as a women's dance routine (kabuki odori), but soon evolved into stage plays, with men taking all of the acting roles. Kabuki acting techniques are passed from father to son, and so techniques tend to remain within a limited number of acting families. Each family becomes the custodian of certain acting roles, and these roles, too, are passed from one generation to the next.
