Description: This is from a series, a total of 100 large nishiki-e prints, all of which were based on moon-related scenes from Japanese and Chinese stories, poems, and songs, took eight years to complete. It is regarded as one of Yoshitoshi's masterpieces.

This particular design illustrates the episode when Toyohara Toriaki encountered two wolves in Kitayama, Kyoto. The fierce creatures became completely calm when he played the sho (a traditional Japanese musical instrument) for them. The iconic pink moon seems to match this mysterious anecdote.
