Horst, you are absolutely right about the play, thank you!
I performed some further research and came up with the possible play "Shin Usuyuki Monogatari" (or related), where cherry blossoms are part of the scenes and that was played at the Kawarazaki theater in March 1839 (see http://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O33125/woodblock-print-none/).
Minbu Katsuraki is one of the roles.
Can the other role name be Saisaki Iga no Kami performed by Ichikawa Ebizo?
