Description: This print is included in a set of 50 prints called "Ukiyo Ekagami," a collection of various artists and genres, which was probably a reproduction in the pre-war period.

Okoma and Saizaburo are the main characters in the play "Koimusume Mukashi Hachijo" first performed in 1775. The figure is based on the fourth scene of the play, Shirokiya. This print depicts a scene of sorrow between the two, Saizaburo Ohana, who has become a hairdresser, and his lover Okoma, who has been returned to her parent's Jogiya.

This print has slight creases, slight spots, and some marks. Also, there is a trace of removal of glue on the backside.
