The warrior Toda Hanbei Shigeyuki stands on a hill as the Battle of Mount Tobisu rages. The flags below bear the mon, or crests, of the great families who were involved in the fight. Individual warriors are identified by sashimono, symbols worn on poles attached to their backs. Usually, this symbol was a flag or card with an appropriate emblem. Shigeyuki used a human skull, which likely terrified his enemies. While the title of the print identifies Shigeyuki, some scholars suggest that the figure is actually Sakai Tadatsugu, the general who marched soldiers through the pouring rain to the top of Mount Tobisu.
