Takahashi Yuichi learned genuine oil painting techniques and made an active contribution as a pioneer of Western-style painting in Japan. Note-mura in Shimousa Province corresponds to modern-day Chiba Prefecture, and legend has it that the consort of Prince Ôtomo was buried there; however, the mound does not remain in this location. In Japan during the Meiji period, oil paintings also served the function of pictures for records, so one could assert that this composition as well is a precious work that conveys the appearance of Dairizuka Mound to us in the present.
