Description: This is from Yoshitoshi's popluar 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.

The scene shows Toyotomi Hideyoshi as a young lieutenant in the service of Oda Nobunaga climbing up the steep mountain side while on a mission to conquer an enemy castle. The castle was on Inaba Mountain and seemed impossible to enter, but Hideyoshi's surprise attack was successful, and the castle was taken by Nobunaga's troops.

The left margin has been repaired - the original publisher's colophon cut off, and replacement paper glued into place.

The print is mounted onto a backing sheet at the four corners.
