Ichikawa Danjuro IX as the warrior Taira no Kagekiyo gripping a naginata, striking a bold pose with one hand thrown out at his side. He frowns angrily as he stares to the side, wearing a white kimono patterned with writing over his armour. His cropped hair sticks out like a bushy halo atop his head, with longer locks over his shoulders and a low ponytail over the back. A light orange curtain is drawn to the side at right, patterned with the actor's name and the three concentric rice measure crest of the Ichikawa Danjuro line of actors.
