More about this print: O-Usu no miko (Little Prince Usu), aka Yamato-Take no Mikoto, was the physically strong and ruthless third son of emperor Keiko, who reigned from 71-130 AD. The many exploits attributed to O-Usu are described in the Kojiki and Nihonji, major histories compiled in the 8th century.

We see him here dressed as a woman and concealing his sword. After his father has sent him to deal with a Kumaso rebellion, he infiltrates in disguise into the rebels' camp, and kills the two brothers who led the rebellion.
