    Comments

    A special Buy˘ program starring Ichikawa Ennosuke. This program celebrates the shűmei in Ky˘to of Ichikawa Seiko II. The Shunjűza is a thetater located within the Ky˘to University of the Arts.

  • Koma: there are many dances that show street performers and others peddlers that you might have seen on the streets of old Edo. This short, energetic dance accompanied by the Tokiwazu style of music features a top vendor (Ichikawa Danko), who sells her tops by performing various tricks.
  • K˘j˘: the close relationship between the actors and the audience is shown by these stage announcements, lavish ceremonies to commemorate various important events. In this case, all the actors of the cast assemble to celebrate the shűmei in Ky˘to of Ichikawa Seiko II.
  • Modori Kago: two palanquin bearers, one from ďsaka, the other from Edo (pre-modern T˘ky˘), decide to stop and rest. As they do so, each boasts of the respective merits of his native town. Finally, the little apprentice courtesan (kamuro) they have been carrying, alights from the palanquin and joins them in their dance. Featuring Ichikawa Seiko as the palanquin bearer from ďsaka (in reality Ishikawa Goemon), Ichikawa Ennosuke as the palanquin bearer from Edo (in reality Goemon's arch-enemy Mashiba Hisayoshi) and Nakamura Kazutar˘ as the kamuro.
