Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from a performance at the Nakamuraza or Nakamura Theater of the warrior Sato Masakiyo (the real-life Kato Kiyomasa) defending a castle, shown sitting on a folding stool looking out a window above a stone foundation. Below, another samurai in full armor scowls up at him, a spear in hand, while a third samurai frowns at him as he holds out a sword wrapped in cloth. The actors include Kataoka Nizaemon as Masakiyo and Seki Sanjuro. Nicely detailed.
