Description The kashira is decorated with a scene of a fishing village on the left and a mountain temple on the right. The top of the pagoda emerges above the trees. The front menuki is in the shape of a sun rising from the water. A crane in flight is at the left. The back menuki shows a minogame tortoise (a symbol of longevity) crawling onto an island. This is part of a mounted set.
