Yui - Attractive portrait of a beauty dressed as a monk or priest traveling along the Tokaido Road. She wears a gray robe and carries a portable shrine on her back, and uses a shakujou or walking staff topped with a ringed finial. A border of clouds separates the figure from a view of Yui, with travelers visible winding around the cliff at right and Mt. Fuji in the distance. A charming image we've never before seen in reprint.
