The legend of the birth of Shintoism. In Fourth Century Japan, the Emperor Keikoh's son Ouso expects to succeed his father on the throne, but Otomo, the Emperor's vassal, prefers Ouso's stepbrother Waka, and conspires to have Ouso die on a dangerous mission he has contrived. But Ouso prevails in the mission and returns to his father's castle under a new name, Prince Yamato Takeru. Otomo plots to have the Prince sent into even greater danger, but Otomo is unaware that the gods have favored the Prince and the outcome is far from what any of them expected. Written by

A Legend about the Origin of the Earth and Japan combined with an epic story
Good, Good and Good, this is the only adjective possible to be used to this jewel of the Japanese cinematography. Culturally is a film to be seen by all, it is amusing and interesting. Here we all learn how we can fight bad things with good behavior and polite talk, something nearly forgotten during these days. The film shows that not always the man can be peaceful but good feelings from humans can help a lot to avoid the violence.
