Bushu, Moon over Ishiyama, Taigyu Tower, Inuzaka Shino, No. 40 - Incredible scene from the novel "Nanso Satomi Hakkenden," which tells the tale of the "Eight Dog Warriors." These great samurai were the offspring of Fusehime, the daughter of Lord Anzai of the Satomi Clan, and a dog. Here the young warrior Inuzaka Shino stands on the verandah of Taigyu Tower with his sword in hand, one foot on the railing. The interior shows the aftermath of a battle with an overturned table and the contents of a porcelain bowl scattered across the floor. A misty clouds floats before the full moon above, shining on a view of Ishiyama Bay below. The inset at upper left shows the Princess Fusehime and her husband, the dog Yatsufusa. A beautiful, atmospheric depiction.
