Object Description
Okaru, the maid of Lady Kaoya, has secretly become the wife of Kampei, who wants to join the 47 ronin. Because they are poor, Okaru decides to sell herself to a Kyoto brothel so that Kampei can use the money to join the vendetta. In this print, Okaru is riding the palanquin at left on her way to Kyoto. Her husband arrives by another route and is shown confronting Okaru's mother at right, demanding to know where his wife has gone. In the center section, two of Kampei's friends wait for him, holding the oversized straw hats worn by begging monks that will help them be disguised.
