The noted writer and critic, Masamune Hakuchō, saved some of the strongest criticism of his early career for a performance by the Kabuki actor Ichikawa Sadanji II. However, this may have been personally motivated, as Hakuchō’s first visit to a geisha house in late 1903 or early 1904 was an attempt to see the famous geisha, Sakae, but he was judged to be a pauper by the proprietress because of his untidy clothing, and was ejected from the premises. Sakae later went on to become the wife of Ichikawa Sadanji II.
