Kujómitsu: New Year's Dance, executed by two Shirabiōshis (Singers). The standing figure, whose robe is figured with pine, bamboo, and almond-blossom (happiness), cranes and tortoises (long life), wears the sambaso on her head and holds a rattle in her hand. The other, whose gown is figured with paulownias, wears the mánžai on her head, and holds up the membako (mask-coffer). Three-colour print in green, red, and grey.
