Comments

The great yearly Dankiku festival for the Naritaya and Otowaya guilds, which commemorates 2 great stars of the Meiji era: Dan = Ichikawa Danjűr˘ IX and Kiku = Onoe Kikugor˘ V. This is also the hatsubutai of Onoe Kikunosuke's son Terajima Kazufumi, who is also the grandson of both Living National Treasures Onoe Kikugor˘ and Nakamura Kichiemon. This young boy receives the name of Onoe Ushinosuke VII, a name unheld for 23 years, in May 2019 at the Kabukiza. The new Ushinosuke performs in the dance-drama "Ehon Ushiwakamaru", which was written by the novelist Murakami Genz˘ and was premiered in February 1984 for the hatsubutai of Onoe Ushinosuke VI.
