Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from the play "Senbon sakura Horikawa" at the Meijiza or Meiji Theater. Ichikawa Danjuro appears as a nobleman looking up with an angry frown, one hand resting atop the hilt of his sword. The cylindrical white box tucked under his arm was used to contain a severed head for identification purposes. Fluttering banners and red paper lanterns on poles can be seen above the rooftops in the distance. Nicely detailed with a burnished pattern on the black court cap.
