Medium: Lithograph
Personal Collection

Note: Kikugor˘ VI, Mitsugor˘ VII, and Kichiemon I
appear to have performed their respective roles in the
same Tokyo production on only one occasion, namely, at
the Ichimura-za in November 1915.  Whether all three
performed together at some later date outside of Tokyo is
not known to me at this time.  The only other time
Kikugor˘ VI played the role of Sakuramaru in Tokyo was
at the Kabuki-za in January 1934.

Ichikawa Sh˘chō II (市川松蔦) as Okichi (お吉)

Play: ?

Performance Date: ?
Print Date: ?

Note: The signature for this print does not appear to read
"Hanayama," though the seller claimed the artist was
Hanayama and was selling it with another similar print by
Hanayama which dates to 1927.  I have included it here in
an abundance of caution.  Sh˘ch˘ II played the role of
Okichi in productions of Onna Goroshi Abura no Jigoku
(女殺油地獄) at the Hong˘-za in September 1925, T˘jin
Okichi (唐人お吉) at the Kabuki-za in August-September
1929,  and T˘jin Okichi to J˘igun (唐人お吉と攘夷軍)
at the Kabuki-za in August 1931. It is not clear which
performance is depicted.
