This image depicts the founder of Zen Buddhism in China, Daruma (Bodhidarma), who studied under Shaka (Shakyamuni) as his 28th generation pupil. Daruma eats a high amount of portions of nihachi (80% buckwheat, 20% wheat) soba at a restaurant in Moriyama, the 69th station on the Kisokaidō (also known as Nakasendō) Road, while the shopkeeper looks at him in dismay.
