Watch for Age of the Samurai prints each week at Fuji Arts.

Scene from Torimazete Sekison Miyage,1823 - Great scene from the kabuki play "Torimazete Sekison Miyage" at the Ichimura Theater of Ichikawa Monnosuke III as Masaemon's wife Otani. She kneels on a straw mat at the base of stone steps, brandishing a sword that was concealed within a bamboo pole. She looks suspiciously out of the corners of her eyes with an angry sneer, her sleeves tied back with a rope and a straw raincoat hanging over her back. A few raindrops slant down across the sky. A handsome design.
