Essay: This work is a part of “F?zoku Gah? (Illustrated News Magazine for Customs and Manners),” a graphic magazine featuring social and cultural issues pertaining to the Edo, Meiji and Taish? periods. This particular scene depicts a crowd of civilians excitedly applauding the imperial procession, one of the many public ceremonies the Meiji government designed and implemented in order to reinforce a sense of common identity and Japanese nationality. Children are lined up in the front row in similar outfits and there is a clear boundary between the cheering crowd and the proceeding horse carriage—all indicating how the event has been carefully designed and controlled for a nationalist display. The repetition of national flags dazzling in the air highlights the sense of Japanese national pride and unity conveyed in this work.
