Description Toyokuni III drew the portrait of an unidentified Kabuki actor in the lower portion of this print. His student Kunisato filled in the background with an illustration from a chapter in "Nise Murasaki Inaka Genji" ("Fake Murasaki's Country Genji"). In this scene, the hero Mitsuuji pays a visit to one of his lovers behind her folding screens, where she has retreated during a frightening typhoon.
