San'en," 87.34.5), and on a hill behind the compound looms their fire-watch tower (<em>hinomi yagura</em>)—these tall watch-towers were among the most familiar sights in the combustible city of Edo.

(Later in the story, Genji will be cuckolded by Kashiwagi, whose son the Third Princess bears.) Although the scene shown here does not suggest that the Princess, who like all noblewomen should remain out of the sight of men, has just been chasing her cat into plain view—the cat is, after all, asleep on its own cushion—any woman depicted in court robes on a verandah with a cat is invariably the Third Princess. The two young men in court robes may therefore be identified as Kashiwagi and his companion, Genji's son Yûgiri.

One of the temple buildings is shown here with donated paintings called <em>ema</em> arrayed under its eaves, while the masses of people move among the temporary stalls set up under the snow-covered trees to sell every sort of trinket and food. These same stalls can still be found selling pretty much the same things in the famous "inner shops" (<em>nakamise</em>) of the Asakusa Sensôji temple. A few of Edo's ubiquitous fire watch-towers can be seen sketched in down in the flatlands along the bay where the merchant class lived and worked. ", "Dedication" : "Gift of Dr. James B.

It appears to pun on the archaic term <em>hisakataya</em>, or "gleaming", a formulaic word used in ancient poetry to modify celestial phenomena such as stars, snow or, as here, falling cherry-blossom petals; and the Hisakata-ya, which was probably the name of the teahouse or restaurant where this particular poetry club met. Hisakataya is also the pen name of one of the two poets whose work is inscribed on the print. The woman depicted here, perhaps an entertainer at the teahouse, continues the classical tone of the print by playing not a <em>shamisen</em>, the favored instrument of the entertainment world, but rather a <em>koto</em>, preferred by the ancient aristocracy. There are two poems on the <em>koto</em>. The one on the right, written by the poet Kamenoya Osamaru, reads: <blockquote>Clouds of cherry-blossoms On this spring day Conceal the bamboo thicket From whence come the sounds Of a jewelled koto.</blockquote> ", "Dedication" : "Transfer from the Art Department of the University of Rochester", "Copyright_Type" : "Public Domain", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "Print", "Creation_Place2" : "Japanese", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "Edo Period (1600-1868)", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/97.228_A1.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/97.228_A1.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/97.228_A1.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/97.228_A1.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "17209", "Image_Type" : "digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
