Vengeance at the Miracle of Hakone - Fantastic scene of the young warrior Iinuma Katsugoro fighting his sworn enemy, who had murdered his brother. The crippled Katsugoro miraculously regained the use of his legs after his wife Hatsuhana prayed for his recovery in the waterfall at Hakone. At left, he lunges to the side as he grips his sword above his head with both hands. In the center, the villain kneels atop a young woman, stepping on her sword as he thrusts his own weapon out at Katsugoro. Fighting continues all around, with another beauty wielding a sword at upper left, and a footman flying through the air at upper right. Pines and blossoming cherry trees frame a view of the water with mountains beyond. A lively scene filled with action and detail.
