I am beginning to mistrust waseda more and more.
According to kabuki21 and Horst Graebner's Kunisada project site, "Imose-yama Onna Teikin" and "Futatsu Chōchō Kuruwa Nikki" are two different plays. At first I thought that one title was that of the play, and the other that of the act (each act has a title in these plays), but that's not the case.
The kunisada project lists the two plays in 1852, both played at the Kawarazaki in 02/1852.
In fact, the play here is "Futatsu Chōchō Kuruwa Nikki", because the actor's role is Nuregami Chogoro (濡髪長五郎), played by Ichikawa Danjuro according to waseda and the Kunisada project.
