Note: This print was printed from recarved Sharaku blocks acquired
by the artist.  The design was incorporated into the artist's print
Kabukich˘ (歌舞伎町).  This print was printed as close as possible
in what is believed to have been the original unfaded color scheme of
the Sharaku print.  That color scheme was intentionally altered for the
Kabukich˘ print to give the figures a more ghostly pallor.
