At left, Oboshi Yuranosuke, the leader of the ronin, looks up with a frown during a discussion with other a samurai. The man in the center looks back at him with a slightly worried expression, his lips pressed together tightly. At lower right, the samurai Genzo grimaces angrily at his companion. An inset above in the form of an unrolled scroll features text. From left, the actors are Ichikawa Danjuro, Nakamura Shikan, Onoe Kikugoro, and Ichikawa Sadanji. Nice large figures set off by a deep red background, with a screen at left decorated with colorful flowers.
