Musashi, Moon over Tatsumi, Lord Tsunayoshi and Lady Osame, No. 16 - Lovely illustration of Lady Osame and Lord Tokugawa Tsunayoshi enjoying a moonlit boat ride in the Fukiage garden pond of Edo Castle.

The inset above shows the evil Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu, an advisor who tried to corrupt the honest Tsunayoshi. A beautiful scene with traces of shimmering mica in the sky and fine embossing in the white kimono fabric.
