Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Inuzaka Keno (detail), c. 1852
I am a Kabuki actor, playing one of eight legendary warriors born under the dog god. In this musha-e (warrior tale) I’m disguised in a woman’s shibori kimono, though my red body armor foreshadows a night of bloody revenge. Just wait till after dark.
