ICHIKAWA GONJURO as YURANOSUKE
Very good impression, colors, and condition.
Yuranosuke is the leader of the 47 Ronin and the hero of the play Kanadehon Chushingura. As recent historical plays were not allowed, the story was turned into a 14th century period piece.
Although Ichikawa Danjuro IX was the biological son of Danjuro VII, he was adopted by Ichikawa Gonnosuke VI and took on that name after Gonnosuke died in 1868. He used the name for a few years before he took on the more prestigious name of Ichikawa Danjuro (IX).
