*Scene of "Mt. Fuji" in Passage 9 "Azumakudari" of "Ise Monogatari".
This scene is often used as a subject by Rimpa School.
There are two similar scenes in "Korin Hyakuzu".
Comparing this painting to the pair of hanging scroll named "絹本極彩色吾妻下二幅対(a pair of Azumakudari full color on silk)",
the pattern of clothes of Narihira and an attendant are exactly the same.
Sakai Houitsu (Kiitsu's master, 1761-1829) and Suzuki Shuitsu (Kiitsu's son, 1796-1858) painted the same scene.
