The Kabuki repertoire can be classified roughly into two categories: Jidaimono and Sewamono.
The Jidaimono dramas are based on a subject of court nobles or samurai families that are far removed from the life of ordinary people in the Edo period. The names of the historical incidents and the people involved therein are used in the dramas. However, they are only used as a theme. For example, in “Imoseyama Onna Teikin”, a subject of the “Taika Reform” is dealt with, but Soga no Iruka appears as a man born between a human and a deer. This setting is the author's creation. In another Jidaimono play, a person called “Oda Harunaga” exists whose name was taken from Oda Nobunaga.
As described above, the Jidaimono plays are based on historical facts arranged by the author's creativity and the legends that were believed true at that time. The picture shows a scene called “Terakoya” in “Sugawara Denju Tenarai Kagami”.
