Commentary
A Buddhist priest has traveled by carriage to the outskirts of Kyoto, where he encounters a tengu, a winged dog-like creature, who challenges the monk’s beliefs. They exchange questions and answers until the tengu, unable to shake the man’s faith, decides to tickle the staid monk with his feathered fan (the scene depicted here).
