A danmari is a short scene with almost no dialogue where a number of contrasting characters appear and grope in the dark for some treasure. Their movements are slow and dance-like. In this particular danmari, the medieval thief Hakamadare Yasusuke encounters the great warrior Hirai Yasumasa and they fight in the presence of a beautiful princess.
