Series: The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, 1852

Tsuchiyama: Ichikawa Kodanji IV as Akogi Heiji - Terrific kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Kodanji IV as the fisherman Akogi Heiji. After learning that his sick mother can only be cured with fish from Akogi Bay, Heiji decides to get some for her, even though fishing is prohibited there as the area belongs to the Grand Shrine of Ise. He casts his net, but instead of fish, he brings up a precious sword when someone sounds the alarm to catch him as a poacher. Here, he looks over his shoulder with a worried grimace, afraid of being captured, his fishing net under his arm and the sword wrapped in red cloth in his other hand. He wears a tan striped kimono, a blue and white cloth wrapped about his head with hair sticking out around it. Above, water rushes down the hillside as rain slants across the dark night sky at Tsuchiyama. A great design, nicely detailed, with a dusting of mica across the top.
