Motoyama: Fujikawa Kaju II - Attractive kabuki portrait of Fujikawa Kaju III as a beauty. She grins happily as she looks over her shoulder, her eyes wide with delight.

The landscape of Motoyama is depicted above, with a mountain dusted with mica and dotted with pines, and bare plum trees in the foreground. A charming image, beautifully detailed with embossing on the white kimono collar and trim, and the centers of the cherry blossoms.
