Print subject: The Shôgun's brother and several lords are gathered for a ceremony to enshrine a priceless helmet which belonged to an enemy of the Shôgun. Overseeing the ceremony is the arrogant and obnoxious Moronô, who is watching that the lords Wakasanosuke and En'ya Hangan carry out everything with due protocol. Moronô wants to be sure that the correct helmet is being enshrined and calls for Hangan's wife, Kaoyo, to identify it. Actually Moronô covets the beautiful Kaoyo and after the identification is completed and the others leave, he tries to slip her a love letter, but she drops it pretending not to notice. As he tries for a second approach, Wakasanosuke returns and sums up the situation in a second. He tells Kaoyo to hurry home and Moronô mutters insult and abuse against the increasingly furious Wakasanosuke. (source: Kabuki 21)
