Pickup currently unavailable
In this exceptional and rare design by Yoshikazu, Kato Kiyomasa and his troops are shown hunting tigers during Japan's failed invasion of Korea in the late 16th century. The scene is chaotic but does a wonderful job illustrating the challenges Kiyomasa and his troops faced when advancing through Korea's mountains.
