  • Corporate Creators: Sadahide Utagawa
  • Description:

    Sugawara no. 2: (Two episodes appear to be illustrated in this scene.) Michizane's house in Kyoto, by the shores of a lake, before he became Chancellor. He is here shown in his capacity of tutor teaching Takebe Genzo, a loyal retainer, who afterwards became tutor of his son, Kanshusai. The uncouth youth sprawling on the veranda is not Kanshusai, nor is he Genzo's son, as the latter has no son; whom he represents is uncertain.

    Behind, Michizane is shown taking leave of his wife and adopted daughter, on departing for Court when appointed Minister to the Emperor.
