Shimosuwa: Seki Sanjuro III as Inukai Genpachi - Great kabuki portrait of Seki Sanjuro III as Inukai Genpachi, one of the famous Eight Dog Warriors in the play commonly known as the "Hakkenden." In a famous fight scene, he duels with Inuzuka Shino, not realizing that they are brothers. Here, he uses an iron truncheon to block a blow from his enemy's sword, grimacing angrily as he turns his head away. He wears a striking kimono patterned with dragons and swirling clouds over his suit of armor, his bushy hair tied back with a red sash. The landscape above shows a view of Shimosuwa with a waterfall rushing over the cliffs at left beneath tall pine trees. An expressive image of this legendary warrior.
