This is part of three sets of six prints each of Noh theater prints published by Kyoto Hanga-in in 1955. Emperor Hanazono held a musical concert at his court. A musician named Fuji was called in instead of his rival, the musician Asama. Asama killed Fuji.

Fuji's wife grieved deeply. She wore Fuji's costume and beat the drum furiously because she thought Fuji's great passion for drum beating ruined him.
