Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of two men waiting in a garden on a dark night. The commoner at right frowns angrily as he looks through the top of the garden gate, gesturing with his hand. He carries a paper lantern on a short pole, his blue plaid kimono tucked up at the waist for easier movement. The samurai at left looks glum as he stands under a blossoming plum tree. He wears a black outer kimono over a brown patterned under robe, his two swords at his side and a white cloth covering his head. Nice expressive figures in a handsomely detailed setting with soft shading in the evening sky.
