Eisen
Act 11, The Raid (161-1-11)
Oboshi and his gang raid the mansion of Moronao, accomplishing their long-cherished objectives. They then withdraw to their lordÕs family temple, Komyo-ji.
The print shows the raid on a snowy night. The date was the 14th day of the 12th month under the lunar calendar. This would be mid January in the solar calendar, and hence the heavy snow is quite plausible.
