Description: Depicted in this print is the climax of Hakone Reigen Izari no Adauchi ("The Revenge of Iinuma Katsugoro: Miracle of the Deity at Hakone"), a story written by Shiba Shisou in 1801. In 1590, Iinuma Katsugoro and his wife Hatsuhana were searching for Takiguchi Kouzuke, a man who had killed Katsugoro's brother and Hatsuhana's father, in order to exact their revenge. While traveling, Katugoro fell ill and became unable to walk, but, determined to find Kouzuke, continued on the mission, his wife pushing him in a wheelchair. In Hakone they finally found Kouzuke, but, in an unfortunate twist, Hatsuhana was kidnapped and killed by the killer. She became a ghost and appeared inside a waterfall, where she prayed for a hundred days for a miracle. Her wish was granted, and Katsugoro was able to walk again. After Hatsuhana saw Katsugoro recover, she disappeared inside the waterfall, and Katsugoro succeeded in avenging his family.
