Fording the Uji River, 1884 by Toyonobu (1859 - 1886)

Original Toyonobu (1859 - 1886) Japanese Woodblock Print
Fording the Uji River, 1884

Comments - Fantastic image of the famous race across the water at the Second Battle of Uji River, when three of Minamoto no Yoshitsune's generals fought to see who could reach the opposite shore and engage the enemy first. At left, Sasaki Shiro Takatsuna's leads the way as arrows streak past. In the center, Hatakeyama Shigetada follows along on his brown horse, a samurai wading through the chest-deep water beside him, while Kajiwara Genda Kagesue brings up the rear on a black horse, wearing a helmet topped with deer antlers. Yoshitsune's troops watch from the shore at right, while Yoshinaka's archers fire from the opposite bank. A lively scene with wonderful detail and a rarely seen subject.
