"Tenaraiko" is about a young girl, who is on her way home from her calligraphy lesson. She carries her notebook and a paper umbrella. She is about to grow out of childhood and is lost in thouhts of love. As a little girl, she plays with some butterflies or some strips of papers. As a woman-to-be, she uses the words she wrote today to compose little poems about love. Then, she performs a short section of the famous dance "Musume D˘j˘ji". The last section of this dance is lively, based on a popular song, with the little girl praying the gods to find a good husband. Then, coming out of her fantasy world, she rushes home.
