More about this print: Kazan was 17 when he became emperor in 985 AD. Only two years later the powerful Fujiwara family tricked him into taking priestly vows, due to which he was forced to abdicate. Here the young Emperor and his companion flee one moonlit night to the Tokozan Bodaiji Temple that later received Kazan's name.
