Minamoto No Yorimitsu Ukiyo-e Painting

BY LEAVE A COMMENT

Minamoto no Yorimitsu lived from 948 until 1021 and was a member of the Fujiwara clan together with his brother Yorinobu.

In this particular painting (by Utagawa Kuniyoshi ) you see him fighting against “Tsuchigumo” . Now that’s not a person but a derogatory term used back in the old days to refer to renegade local clans.
