This piece shows how the almanac (calendar) was established.
Four actors wearing especially large masks appear on stage. They represent the gods of the four seasons. They are brothers and have another brother, the youngest, who aims for becoming one of them. There was a fight between the four gods and their youngest brother, but in the end, the youngest brother gained special days in each season, a total of eighteen days around the equinoxes and solstices.

The period relating the youngest brother is very important time for rice farming. This story is very much related to the farming.
