Dates of birth and death unknown. Disciple of Sawamura S˘jűr˘ II, his first stage name was Sawamura Tsuruz˘. He took the name of Sawamura Utagawa after the death of his master in 1770. This wakaonnagata actor finally took the name of Sawamura Harugor˘ II in the 11th lunar month of 1787 at the Moritaza, where he performed in the kaomise drama "Tsuranaru Edamure Takamatsu", which also celebrated the shűmei of both Sawamura Kameemon and Iwai Kiyotar˘ II. He switched to male roles in 1792 and appeared on ˘shibai stage for the last time in the 3rd lunar month of 1793, in Edo at the Nakamuraza. We don't know what has happened to him afterwards for he disappeared from the records.
