The story seem mixed different Japanese tales.
I wonder if Yura was not inspired by some cherry tree, like “Garyuzakura, called the Millennium cherry tree?” The name comes from its unique shape which reminds visitors of a dragon lying on the ground.
The story is about a dragon god (ryuujin), where its life is connected to a cherry tree. The whole of the song is very sad. Sometimes, you can hear in the composition from Tsukagoshi the notes of pipe from “him.” I really love how it fits with the context of the song.
