Comments - Interesting kabuki scene featuring Yajirobei, one of the bumbling heroes of the novel "Shank's Mare Tokaido," which chronicles his comic misadventures with his companion Kitahachi traveling by foot along the Tokaido Road. Yajirobei scratches his head with a puzzled frown as he looks over his shoulder, a pipe in his mouth and a small basket hanging from a red cord over his shoulder. A narrow river wind across the back of the scene beneath a willow and blossoming cherry tree. An expressive figure in a handsome natural setting.
