Rokusuke (毛谷村六助) watching a wrestling match between kappa from the series The Mirror of the Strange Tales from Japan and China (Wakan Kidan Kagami - 和漢奇談鑑)

Identifier: 1880 Yoshitoshi sumo kappa
Description:

This copy is probably a later edition than the one in the Shizuoka Prefectural Central Library. Click on that link we have provided to make a comparison. Look particularly at the text cartouche in the upper left-hand corner. The one in the Lyon Collection is a solid pink while the one in Shizuoka is tricolored which is a give-away sign that a print is from an earlier edition.
