Comments - Bold kabuki portrait of an alarmed man, leaning forward with a surprised expression as he takes a toothpick from his mouth, his eyes wide. He has a striped robe draped over one shoulder of his blue and white print kimono, and a dotted cloth around his neck. A band shaded from blue to white to green with a tie-dyed geometric pattern runs across the top, with a red "Akashiya" crest in the center and "Akashiya" written at left. A handsome design, nicely detailed with burnishing on the black kimono collars.
