Description Samurai Imagawa Yoshimoto by Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861), master of ukiyo-e style of Japanese woodblock prints. Yoshimoto is shown holding a samurai commander's saihai, a baton, in his right hand, and wearing a helmet decorated with fierce-looking horns. Standing in front of a wooden stockade, confirming that this is a battlefield scene, Yoshimoto's posture and expression convey the anxiety which even the fiercest samurai could feel in the face of an approaching enemy. Yoshimoto was indeed killed in battle. On the left, tied to the stockade, is the samurai's yaguraotoshi, a long-handled weapon used in attacking castles that ends in a crescent-shaped metal point.
