|| New Reproduction
||230mm x 367mm
Yonesaburo also is listed in the play-bill as taking the part of Shinobu, the younger sister of Miya-gino, in this production; but actors often took more than one part in a play, and the role represented here is believed to be that of Kewaizaka no Shosho.
The costume is mainly in rose and white with a darker rose above and a white collar. The obi bears an elaborate design of black on black.
There are impressions in which the design in black on the black obi is omitted or has become invisible. The print bears a hand-written inscription giving the name of the actor.
