Description: "Gekko Zuihitsu" (Gekko's Sketch) "Urashima Tarou". URASHIMA Tarou is going home after he spent 3 years in the dragon king's palace. The palace is fading away under the sea waves like a dream. The large mino-game with its flowing tail swims in the ocean as if it were flying in the air. "Mino-game" is a thousand-year-old tortoise which has long tails. It is one of the four supernatural animals in Japanese legends.
