Note: Kikugor˘ VI first played the role of Yayoi in this
play in Tokyo at the Ichimura-za in January 1914. 
Although Kikugor˘ VI's final Tokyo appearance in this role
was in October 1945, it is possible that Gak˘ based this
print on one  of Kikugor˘ VI's prior performances.   Some
authorities give the date for this print as 1948 or 1952. 
The date used is the date on the folder for the white
sleeve variant until and unless a difference folder date
surfaces for one of the purple sleeve versions.
