About This Print

Emperor Meiji, five year old Crown Prince Yoshito and Empress Haruko attend a celebration at the end of the Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895) which concluded in April 1895. While military officers raise a cheer, the emperor and the crown prince, in full military dress look on. Empress Haruko, however, wears traditional rather than Western dress.  

For more information on the war see the article Sino-Japanese War Prints (1894-1895).  For more information on the depiction of the royal family in prints see the article Prints of the Emperor Meiji and Empress Haruko.
