In 1892 Chikanobu produced a set of single sheet prints entitled Mirror of the East (Azuma kagami) with English language titles printed above the images. The artist and publisher were probably experimenting with making tourist souvenirs for sale in Japan, and perhaps even planning to sell these prints at international markets like the Midway at Chicago's 1893 Columbian Exposition. The source of stories for this series has not yet been identified, and the battle between a snake and the white eagle is unusual.
