Ichikawa Danjuro IX as (Naifu) Shigemori
“Shigemori Kangen” was written by Kawatake Mokuami (at that time Shinshichi) and premiered by Danjuro IX in May 1876 at Nakamura-za. It is one of the Living History plays, therefore Danjuro wears realistic beard. This became one of the most popular repertoire for Danjuro IX and was chosen into Shin Kabuki Juhachiban.
