77. Lunacy - unrolling letters (Tsuki no monogurui - fumihiroge)

Ochiyo was a young maidservant in the household of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. One day she received news that her lover had died, and went mad with grief. She wandered around Kyoto, rolling and unrolling his letters. Here Ochiyo stands barefooted on Gojo Bridge, staring vacantly past the letters that are spiraling towards the moon. (printed in 1889)
