 New Kumiodori "Madamamichi"

Kurata Makaru, a Shuri government official, and Komatsu of Madama Village promise to get married, but due to the difference in their social status, the marriage is opposed by Makaru’s parents, and the couple bid farewell to each other in tears.

A few years later, difficulties were encountered in Madama Village in a project to construct a bridge leading to Madama Road. Under this circumstance, Makaru arrived in Madama Village as a new magistrate from Shuri. He calls on a “yuta (spiritual counselor)” to seek advice on the bridge construction project. She happens to be Komatsu, who advises Kurata that as a divine message, a “woman wearing a rainbow color hair tie” must be put up as a human sacrifice for the bridge to be built successfully. Komatsu decides to wear a rainbow color hair tie and sacrifices herself for Makaru.

The bridge is constructed successfully, and Makaru goes up the Madama Road alone, thinking about Komatsu.
