About This Print

The emperor, empress and crown prince are hosting a year-end celebration for the military after Japan's victory in the Sino-Japanese War which ended in April 1895.  A similar, if not the same event, as in Nobukazu's print IHL Cat. #160 depicting the emperor and empress at a military celebration.  In both, Empress Haruko is in traditional rather than Western dress. Also see the article Prints of the Emperor Meiji and Empress Haruko.
