  From one of Chikanobu s series,Azuma Nishiki Chuya Kurabe Edo Embroidery Pictures,Comparison of the Day and Night This shows the court lady of the Yoshida palace,Tenju-in,who killed her ex-loverand threw him into a well.The top panel shows the casting into the well.The lower panel shows the court life, where she is perhaps making the decision?
