Notes

[1] Around the same time in 1715, Miyazaki Denkichi performed in ďsaka and Miyazaki Giheita performed in Ky˘to in a different theater.

[2] This was very likely but we could not find any proof to back this assumption. No proof but a few pieces of data: both actors performed at the Moritaza in the 11th lunar month of 1716.
