Dojoji (Dojo Temple). A design from a Noh Play, Dojoji has another interesting story of demons at Dojoji. One day a new bell was going to be hung in the temple and only men were allowed. A woman asked to get into the temple to see the bell under the condition that she would dance for them. The woman finally was allowed to dance, and when she danced wildly towards the bell, the bell dropped to the floor and the woman disappeared. The monk of the temple knew that must have been a ghost's doing and talked about the story of a girl called Kiyohime who loved a monk, Anchin. But Anchin was afraid of her and tried to hide in the bell of Dojoji. The woman turned into a serpent and wrapped herself around the bell and melted it in her rage.
