Description: This is from Yoshitoshi's popular series 'One Hundred Aspects of the Moon.', 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.

A portrait of the warrior Sakanoe no Tamuramaro, who died in 811 after a glorious career on the battlefield. He was honored as the Shinto god Tamura Myojin, associated with Kiyomizu Temple on Mount Otowa. The scene shows the ghost of young Tamura sweeping the grounds of the temple as cherry blossom petals flutter down through the sky before him.
