The rulers are shown at top center sitting in ornately carved chairs, the emperor in a military uniform and the empress wearing an unusual headdress. Two of the men are traditionally dressed in formal robes and court caps, while the rest wear uniforms decorated with sashes and medals.

Nicely detailed with burnishing on the black uniforms, a burnished pattern on the black court robe in the center, and embossing on the white kimono trim.
