Publisher: Yenshu-ya Hikobei Fine impression, color and condition. Famous battle, in which two rival warriors, Kajiwara Kagesuye and Sosaki Takatsune raced to see who would cross the Uji River first and meet the enemy. Sosaki won by tricking kajiwara intothinking his saddle girth was loose causing him to pause and lose the race.
