浄瑠璃 - Jōruri
戻橋 恋の角文字 - Modoribashi, Koi no tsunoji -
Bridge of Return, The second, cow-horn letter of koi (love) - (Title of the theatrical piece)
Jōruri is a genre of Kabuki theatre
Modoribashi (Bridge of Return) is a name of a bridge in Kyōto.
Second, cow-horn (shaped) letter (hiragana) of "koi" (love);
When the word 恋 "koi" (love) is written in hiraganas "こい", the shape of second letter "い”resembles a cow-horn.
