Tengajaya, circa 1844 - 1845 - Handsome scene from the tale known as "Tengajaya." After the evil Toma Saburoemon killed their father, two young samurai Hayase Iori and Hayase Genjiro vow to achieve vengeance by killing Saburoemon. Here, Genjiro, wearing a white robe over a suit of armor, ambushes Saburoemon as the older man is traveling. Genjiro confronts his enemy as Saburoemon glares down at him from a stride his gray horse, a sneer on his face as his henchmen. A small village along the water can be seen in the distance, framed by pine trees, and several sails dot the rosy horizon. A great image from this rarely seen Hiroshige series.
