Comments - Handsome kabuki scene featuring Bando Mitsugoro as the servant Hachizo and Segawa Kikunojo as a beauty. Hachizo looks up with an angry frown as he sharpens the blade of his sword on a whetstone, a bucket of water with a dipper in it nearby. The beauty watches him suspiciously out of the corners of her eyes, her mouth slightly agape. She holds a drawstring purse in one hand as she tucks the other into her tie-dyed obi. At upper left, another bucket rests on a stone beside a well surrounded by foliage. Nice expressive figures.
