Featuring the Battle of Ichi-no-Tani. General Yoshitsune, the leader of the Genji troops, led his battalion down the cliff in a surprise attack on the Heike troops at the bottom of the mountain.

The Genji set fire to the huts of the Heike, and the Heike troops fled to sea. Tosa School painting in ink and mineral pigments and gold leaf on paper.
