Description

A leading kabuki actor of the first half of the 20th century, Nakamura Kichiemon I (1886-1954) had a strong interest in the historical figure, Katô Kiyomasa (1562-1611), one of the most famous warlords of Japan during an epoch of civil war. Kichieimon commissioned several new plays with himself in the Kiyomasa role.
