Description: This is one print from Yoshitoshi's "Twenty-four Accomplishments in Imperial Japan" series depicting important Japanese historical figures (mostly samurai).

This particular print shows Soga no Hakoomaru (later known as Goro Tokimune), in red, confronting his enemy Kudo no Suketsune, who was responsible for his father's death. Soga no Hakoomaru was the youngest of the famous Soga Brothers.

The faces of the two men are very expressive, a characteristic of Yoshitoshi's art. The colours of the print are rich.

There is some minor running to the pigments, and some minor soiling. A section of the left side of the print has been torn off, and the resulting hole repaired. There are also one or two small tears to the print.
