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.

The print illustrates the Sanno Festival, a celebration every June coordinated around a Shinto full moon ritual. The festival included parades and bright costumed figures of the natural gods. This is a scene when a float with a dancer impersonating the Dragon King, preceded by another float with a crowing rooster on a drum, was passing Edo castle.
