Comments - Dramatic scene of a young couple and a monk in a temple that is on fire, flames raging behind the monk as he clasps his hands together in prayer, scowling angrily. The man glares back at him, throwing one hand out in alarm. He wears a white kimono patterned with large characters, a white sash tied around his forehead and his loose hair falling over his shoulders. The beauty reacts with concerned expression. An intriguing image with large expressive figures, detailed with embossing on the beauty's white collar.
