Originally part of an all-day, five-act jidaimono play called Kinmon Gosan no Kiri ("The Golden Gate and the Paulownia Crest"), only the "Sanmon" scene is currently performed.  It is also the only part translated into English.
Unlike many other plays from the Edo period, often adapted from bunraku or noh, Sanmon Gosan no Kiri was written directly for kabuki. It was premiered by the Ōgawa Kichitarō I troupe at the Kado no Shibai theater in Osaka, in the fourth month of 1778.   The original cast  included Arashi Hinasuke I in the role of Goemon, and Onoe Kikugorô I in the role of Hisayoshi (the kabuki alias for the famous daimyō Toyotomi Hideyoshi).
