This is a print by Utagawa Kuniyoshi of the actor Ichikawa Danjuro VIII in the role of 'Musashibo Benkei' from the play 'Kanjincho'. It was performed at the Kawarasaki-za Theatre in the 3rd month of 1849. The section of the play that is depicted is the so-called 'Yamabushi mondo' ('The Interrogation of the Yamabushi'), one of several famous highlights, and the text at the top of your print is a quotation from that dialogue. Down the right-hand side is a poem composed by the actor, and signed 'Mimasu'.
