Author's commentary: 
  From one of Chikanobu s series,Azuma Nishiki Chuya Kurabe Edo Embroidery Pictures,Comparison of the Day and Night This shows one of the famous four retainers of Minamoto Raiko,Watanabe Tsuna,who meets a beautiful lady near a bridge,who later was found to be the disguise of a demon.In this scene he is seated on a sorrel horsewearing a purple breastband and bridle with cloth reins, nice detail of traditional stirrups,and the /lady/ is looking timid.
