Nakamura Fukusuke I as the Shirabyoshi Dancer Hanako, 1860

Comments - Edoganoko Ninin Dojo-ji" of Nakamura Fukusuke I as the shirabyoshi dancer Hanako. The beauty had come to Dojo-ji Temple hoping to dance before the new temple bell. No women had been allowed at the temple since the death of the monk Anchin at the hands of the beauty Kiyohime. Unaware that the beauty is actually the spirit of Kiyohime, the monks allow her to perform, and are soon overcome with strange sensations. The beauty grins evilly as she stands under the bell, dressed in a red kimono patterned with cherry blossoms and flowing water. Cherry blossoms frame the darkening sky, and a signpost appears at right. An expressive figure, with nice detail in the kimono fabric and setting.
