Notes

[1] In Nojima Jusabur˘'s book "Kabuki Jinmei Jiten", it was reported that this actor started his career in 1800 in ďsaka in kodomo shibai, performing under the name of Arashi Kosabur˘, not Arashi Naojir˘ (which was the first name of Arashi Hinasuke IV). For this actor, we decided to stay in sync with the latest edition (2012) of "Kabuki Haiyű Meiseki Benran".

[2] In Nojima Jusabur˘'s book "Kabuki Jinmei Jiten", Arashi Hidenosuke II was the second name of Arashi Hinasuke IV, not Arashi Hinasuke III.

[3] The 17th of the 9th lunar month of the 10th year of the Bunka era was the 10th of October 1813 in the western calendar.
