More about this print: In a scene from the Kabuki play Sumidagawa ("The Sumida River"), Mizuki Tatsunosuke (1673-1745), a famous onnagata - a male actor who specializes in female roles - admires the cherry trees at Sekiya. The poem reads: "Cherry trees blossom by the Sumida River - boats fade from view in the gathering dusk at Sekiya as I view the moon."
