Four years later he took his father's name, Kamezo, as his father changed his name to Uzaemon. In 1788 he became Uzaemon X and Ichimura theater manager VIII. He had a debt from his father and it settled once, but he had a huge debt again in 1793 so Kiri Theater was opened as a substitute. He adopted a son of Fukuchi Shigebee (his relative) and made him succeed to Uzaemon. In 1797, a 65-year-old man supported him economically, and the following year Ichimura Theater was opened again, but he passed away soon after.
