Tokyo kaika kyoga meisho

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description A foreign woman visits the Fox Shrine in Oji at the hour of the ox (1-3 AM) in order to put a curse on a former lover. What's funny is the sight of a foreigner doing something in a traditional Japanese manner. Yoshitoshi carries it even further by having a fox interrupt the woman's ritual.
Provenance C. Robert Snell, Oriental Arts & Antiques, Timonium, Maryland; purchased by Justine Lewis Keidel, Owings Mills, Maryland, after 1971; given to Walters Art Museum, 1991.
Inscriptions [Signature] Yoshitoshi giga (drew for fun); [Transcription] Oji inari onna ijin no toki mairi; [Translation] "visit to the fox shrine in Oji at the hour of the foreign woman" (?)
Credit Gift of Justine Lewis Keidel, 1991
