“清正陣屋に還り是より山上に入て此城の後へ廻らんと云バ森本儀太夫進み出某し疾より然様に考へ候へ共山高く谷深く候へバ進み難く候はんと存じ黙止(もだし)て候と申せバ飯田覺兵衛も同じ様に申て是を止むるを清正聞て此山ハ地に續きしが中に立たるかと問森本飯田口を揃へ地に續かぬ山の有べや實に大地に續きし高山なりと申す清正莞爾(につこ)と打笑ひ三四十人を擇出し?山路を指て分入る”

“次第/\に分行バ果して大なる谷あり案内の若者此谷を廻り候へバ上り下り一里に遠く候此峯を傳ひて南へ廻り候時ハ廿町に足ず候へ共路狭くして二人とハ並ばれずと云を聞木村又藏夫ハ易き事の候よと云かと見れバ大木を押倒し/\忽ちに幅二三丈の棧(かけはし)を作り出たれバ…”

Toshihide (1863 - 1925)
Fujiwara no Yasumasa Playing the Flute by Moonlight
Series; Toshihide Zuihitsu


Beautiful scene of the nobleman Fujiwara no Yasumasa playing the flute as he stroll along the moor on a moonlit night. His brother, the outlaw Kidomaru, has snuck up behind him, intent on stealing his fine brocade robes, but instead, the music enchants him, stopping him in his tracks. Here, Yasumasa looks out of the corners of his eyes, aware that someone is behind him, yet he keeps on playing. Kidomaru stares at his intended victim with an intense expression, his sword in his hand.

Toshihide (1863 - 1925)  
Momijigari (Maple Viewing)
Series  Eighteen Honorable Men and Deeds, 1899

 A scene from a legend about Taira no Koremochi. He was wandering in the hills outside Kyoto hunting deer when he met up with a group of beautiful women, including a young princess. Koremochi joined them in a picnic, and ate and drank with the group. As he was dozing off, he was visited by a messenger from the god of war who told him to be alert, draw his sword and slay one of the beauties as she was a demon disguised as a beautiful woman.
