    Sugawara no. 6: Tokihira, a furious figure in white robes, standing on his dismantled chariot, casts a spell over Umeo and Sakura-maru, who have broken and trampled the shafts and the covering of the chariot and were on the point of killing him, but his spell renders them helpless.

    Matsuo makes as though to attack his brothers in defence of Tokihira. The scene is laid outside a temple, part of the 'torii' before it appearing on the background in a grove of trees.
