Description:

From the Kabuki play ‘Shoutsushi Asagao Nikki’, in which Miyagi Asojiro and Miyuki, fall in love, when a breeze blows a poem that he wrote into her boat. Before parting, he writes a poem about Asagao, (morning glory flowers) on her fan. They meet again as they both are about to sail from the port of Akashi. Asojiro hears someone singing the poem about the morning glory and is overjoyed to find that it is Mo to Kamakura, but before she can go from her boat to his, the wind blows them apart. She tosses the fan with the poem to Asojiro as a keepsake. Inset Miyagi surrounded by the flowers seems to be looking over the inset towards the women below. From the series Setsugekka. ‘Snow, Moon, Flowers’
