Blind Masseurs Wrestling at Yamashita; Ueno and Musicians Farting at the Toshogu Shrine in Ueno - Unusual uncut page featuring two designs from this lively Yoshitoshi series. The top image shows a group of blind masseurs wrestling in the street at Yamashita, Ueno, and knocking over a noodle vendor's stand in the process. Below, musicians performing at Toshogu Shrine in Ueno hold their noses after one of them farts. These woodblocks were designed to be cut and sold as two separate chuban prints, so it's rare to find an uncut page. A great choice for a collector.
