Otani Oniji III as the servant Yakko Edobei in the play Koinyobo Somewake Tazuna

Yakko Edobei is a villainous rogue who plots to steal money from the servant Ippei. Otani Oniji's leering face, shown in three quarter view, bristling hair, and groping outstretched hands capture the ruthless nature of this wicked henchman. The eye-catching costume pattern of yellow stripes on brown adds a stylish touch expressive of the times.
