.Intriguing Kuchi-e print of a torpedo officer paying a visit to a wounded soldier in the hospital. He stands with his right hand on a chair, chatting with the patient, who sits up slightly in bed, who sits up slightly in bed. The officer wears a black uniform with a medal pinned to his chest, his sword at his side. A nurse bows politely during the interchange, a red cross visible on her white cap. The patient’s chart hangs from the bed frame at right, an interesting detail.
From the story of the same name  by Miyake Seiken in “Bungei kurabu.”
