Description Tametomo, seen here on horseback, was one of the legendary heroes of the clan wars of the 12th century. Seven feet tall and phenomenally strong, when he was at last captured the sinews of his bow arm were cut, and he was deposited on the island of Oshima. There on the beach, together with local inhabitants and some of his followers, he views a distant Mt. Fuji.
