Minakuchi: Panoramic View of Mount Iwafuri, 1855 - Dramatic design from the collaborative Hiroshige and Toyokuni III Tokaido Road series. In the foreground, Toyokuni III depicts the beauty Ofude and Banba Chuta fighting in the "Sasahiki" scene from the kabuki play "Hiragana Seisuiki." The beauty holds a scroll in her mouth as she attacks the samurai with her sword, while he blocks the blow with his own weapon. Hiroshige's beautiful landscape above illustrates the harbor at Minakuchi with tiny travelers perched atop a steep hill overlooking the water. Nice detail in this interesting print, with embossing on the white kimono and the scroll.
