Moon of the enemy’s lair (Zokuso no tsuki)

42. Moon of the enemy_s lair (Zokuso no tsuki)

O-Usu no miko (Little Prince Usu), aka Yamato-Take no Mikoto, was the physically strong and ruthless third son of emperor Keiko, who reigned from 71-130 AD. The many exploits attributed to O-Usu are described in the Kojiki and Nihonji, major histories compiled in the 8th century. We see him here dressed as a woman and concealing his sword. After his father has sent him to deal with a Kumaso rebellion, he infiltrates in disguise into the rebels’ camp, and kills the two brothers who led the rebellion. (probably printed in 1886)
