Mount Yoshino midnight-moon (Yoshinoyama yowa no tsuki)

Iga no Tsubone, a court lady with the exiled emperor Go-Daigo, withstands and exorcizes the spirit of the courtier Sasaki no Kiyotaka under a full, but heavily clouded moon. Kiyotaka, adviser to Emperor Go-Daigo, was forced to commit suicide in 1333, and his angry spirit haunted the Emperor’s temporary court in the Yoshino Mountains. (printed January 1886)
