Caption below photo written by Kumezo Hatchimonji: 'Yoshitsune K no Hashi, presented at Earl Hall, Columbia University in 1927. 3rd from left, back row, our instructor, an actor from the Imperial Theatre, Tokyo. My role was a humble one but as a character actor, maybe I played well. Anyway, I made the audience laugh.' Kumezo is shown on the front row, second from left."
