Real-world information[edit]

Ōtani Oniji the 3rd as Yakko Edobei

Ōtani Oniji the 3rd as Yakko Edobei is a Japanese print by the mysterious Sharaku, a Japanese artist. Little is known of him: he was active for only around ten months in 1794 and 1795, and he may even be a group of artists that used the name Sharaku—this word is a shortened version of the word sharakusai, meaning nonsense in Japanese.

Sharaku did not become popular until the 20th century; pieces by him (or them) are now considered to be a famous example of Japanese woodblock art (ukiyo-e).

Ōtani Oniji the 3rd as Yakko Edobei depicts a Kabuki actor supposedly during a performance. The painting is on display in the Tokyo National Museum.
