Evening Stroll during the Torinomachi Festival, 1860

Comments - Attractive scene of kabuki actors on an evening stroll during the Torinomachi Festival. The man at right carries a decorated rake called kumade, popular with festival-goers to symbolize "raking in" prosperity in the coming year. In front of him, a sumo wrestler looks up with a strange grimace as he scratches his head. The beauty in the center smiles back at him, her hand resting on the sleeve of her companion at left. Buildings and trees in dark silhouette against the night sky fill the background, with a festival display at far left. The left panel includes Ichikawa Ichizo III and Sawmura Tanosuke III. The center panel features Iwai Kumesaburo III and Kawarazaki Gonjuro I. A handsome design with an interesting setting.
