Scene from Yume musubu cho ni torioi, 1856 - Great scene from the kabuki play Scene from Yume musubu cho ni torioi" at the Ichimura Theater of a fight between the female groom Ushiwaka Oyoshi at left and the female robber Kumasaka Ocho at right. Ocho raises her naginata above her head with both hands, an alarmed expression on her face as the younger Oyoshi thrusts a sword at her, smiling slyly. Ocho's black outer robe features dragonflies caught in a spider's web, worn over a black fur vest, print robe, and armor. At upper left, two of Ocho's henchmen rush through the night, one carrying a flaming torch, a crate roped to his back, and the other armed with a huge hachet. From left, the actors are Bando Hikosaburo V and Onoe Kikugoro IV. An interesting female version of the tale about the robber Kumasaka and the young samurai Ushiwakamaru, the future Minamoto no Yoshitsune.
