This print is part of Yoshitoshi's famous series "100 Aspects of the Moon" which depicts scenes from traditional Chinese and Japanese history and lore. In a scene from the Noh play "Benkei on the Bridge", the high-born child Minamoto Ushikawa defends the Gojo Bridge in Kyoto against the warrior-priest Benkei. Benkei, unable to defeat Ushikawa and realizing the birth status of the boy, surrenders. Ushikawa later became the great General Minamoto Yoshitsume (1159-1189). Yoshitoshi was intrigued by this story, depicting its scenes in several other works.
