Light soiling in the actor's cheek; good color The Yakusha Tokaido by Kunisada Utagawa is a large series of actor portraits in front of a landscape design of the Tokaido stations. The designs combined two popular ukiyo-e subjects, actor portraits and Tokaido landscape prints. The series was ostensibly published as a landscape series to circumvent the censorship ban on kabuki actor prints introduced by the Tokugawa shogunate with the Tenpo reforms from 1841/42.
