The recital program "World Cultural Heritage Shimogamo Shrine Kamo no Ne 2nd Night 'Yomigaeri'" was held on October 16, 2021, at Shimogamo Shrine, Kyoto. It featured a funny and sad story with unpredictable development of the 4 siblings voiced by Kishio Daisuke, Shimono Hiro, Maeno Tomoaki, and Shimazaki Nobunaga, and the gesture of the audience sniffing or rubbing their eye can be seen. "Kamo no Ne" is a recital that is being held at the world cultural heritage, Shimogamo Shrine, and it will be held for the 2nd time. The recital featured content that can only be experienced with the original story that fully makes use of the location, which is Shimogamo Shrine. The recital started with the narration of the folklore of Shimogamo Shrine "Ninuri-ya Densetsu" by Nozawa, followed by the appearance of Kishio Daisuke, Shimono Hiro, Maeno Tomoaki, and Shimazaki Nobunaga in the traditional Japanese clothing. The role compositions of the story were Kishio with 4 roles as "Takumi (Eldest Son), Umemoto, Sage, Young Child (1)", Shimono with 3 roles as "Kousuke (2nd Son), Hero, Young Child (2)", Maeno with 4 roles as "Yuji (3rd Son, Rurikawa, Warrior, Young Child (3)", and Shimazaki as "Shintarou (4th Son)". The scripts that were written by the 4th son Shintarou voiced by Shimazaki revolved around Kishio as the eldest son Takumi, Shimono as the 2nd son Kousuke, and Maeno as the 3rd son Shintarou. Then, there was a situation of the radio program that invited laughter due to the odd pairing of the radio personality Rurikawa, and the traffic conveying information center Umemoto. After that, there was an adventure fantasy story about the 3-man party (Sage, Hero, and Warrior) trying to escape from the enemy barrier, but due to their detailed personality, it invited disaster instead, and the story about the young children talking about their dreams that were out of the expectation of the adults. All of these variety contents were voiced by the three people. At a glance, the scripts by the 4th son don't seem to have any connections, but when it was revealed that that the script is filled with the scattered childhood memories of the siblings, the atmosphere of the stories immediately changed. Why did the 4th son write these scripts, why are the childhood memories of the siblings being scattered, why doesn't the scripts featured the 4th son, why were the 3 siblings being featured in the script of the 4th son...? During the second half of the program, the turbulent development of revealing the foreshadow of the story that solves those questions had taken the audience's breath away. Then, as soon as the recital has ended with laughter and tears, it started to rain as if it was waiting for the end. The curtain of this recital, which was enhanced by the stage at Shimogamo Shrine, the lineup of cast members, ending song, as well as the sky pattern, descended with the applause of the audience.
