Comments - Interesting scene of the Emperor Nintoku visiting his palace in Naniwa (present-day Osaka). He rides in an elegant covered palanquin topped with a phoenix figurine at left, surrounded by samurai on foot. At bottom center, a samurai beats a drum as the procession strolls past the palace, while retainers on horseback bring up the rear. An entrance gate can be seen at top center with blossoming cherry trees and rooftops beyond the outer wall. A handsome design, nicely detailed.
