Ichimura Kakitsu IV as Mizushima Samon, 1868 - Terrific kabuki scene of Ichimura Kakitsu IV as the prisoner Mizushima Samon attempting to escape. He grabs the handle of a spear thrust at him, sneering angrily as he raises his sword, a handcuff and chain attached to his wrist. He wears a boldly patterned dark blue and white kimono tied with a white obi, his hair pulled back into a thick ponytail with a white sash around his forehead. A lively design, detailed with embossing on the obi and a dusting of mica across the top of the night sky.
