Title: Goveflower Village - Abbreviated Japanese History
"Dai Nihon Shi Ryaku Zue" (Picture of Abbreviated Japanese History) No. 76. Lord of Edo Castle, Ohta Dokan was hunting with falcon at Takada. A sudden rain shower started. He went to a village house nearby to borrow a straw raincoat. The girl of the house presented him only a branch of Japanese globeflowers without saying anything. Later, he was told that the flower suggested an old poem which meant that she did not have a straw raincoat. Dokan shamed that he did not know the poem, and he started learning the old waka poems.
