Mutsu, Moon, Princess Katami and Asahina, No. 31 - The son of the female warrior Tomoe gozen and Wada Yoshimori, Wada Asahina Saburo Yoshihide traveled to the north to re-establish the Wada clan after his father was killed. Along the way, Asahina met many strange and unusual people. Here Asahina looks down from a riverbank at the beautiful young Princess Katami, who is trying to escape from Mutsu Castle in Hirosaki by sailing down the river in a wooden tub. Two egrets fly across the sky, the full moon shining down on the palace towers in the distance. The inset above shows an extraordinary pair of men, one with long legs and the other with long arms, whom Asahina encountered during his travels. Working together, the men were able to catch fish. A beautiful evening scene with Chikanobu's characteristic fine drawing and attention to detail.
