[Synopsis] One spring morning, Hakuryu, a fisherman living in Miho no Matsubara finds a beautiful robe--hagoromo--hanging on pine branches while going fishing with his companions. Just when Hakuryo attempts to take the robe as heirloom, a celestial maiden appears and begs to return the garb. Hakuryu, who at first rejected her plea and unwilling to return the robe, is moved at the sight of maiden in tears who says, "I cannot go back to heaven without it." He decides to return the garb in exchange for her dance. After the celestial maiden wears the robe, she portrays lunar world such as moon palace through dance; she keeps on dancing, glorifying the splendor of Miho no Matsubara in spring; she then soars above Mt. Fuji faraway and finally disappears, enveloped in the mist.
