Description The sword fight featured in this print comes at the dramatic conclusion to a play that explores the nature of loyalty and honor among the women who serve the daughter of the Shogun Yoritomo. The evil Iwafuji raises her sword, at right, to kill the faithful Ohatsu, who has discovered Iwafuji's plot to kill the shogun. Ohatsu parries with an umbrella and eventually kills Iwafuji.
