Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) and Hiroshige II (1826 - 1869) Soji-ji in Settsu Province, Temple 22 of the Saikoku Pilgrimage Route, 1859 Series; Miracles of Kannon (Kannon reigenki)
Soji-ji in Settsu Province, Temple 22 of the Saikoku Pilgrimage Route, 1859 - Lovely scene from the story of Chunagon Yamakage Fujiwara. Just before a journey to Kyushu Island, Takafusa Fujiwara, the father of Yamakage, saw that fishermen had captured a large sea turtle. As a devoted disciple of Kannon, he purchased the turtle and set it free. The next day as he and his family boarded the ship, Yamakage’s wet nurse reported that the boy had fallen overboard. Takafusa immediately began praying to Kannon, and miraculously, the turtle he had rescued the day before appeared out of the water carrying his son safely on its back. The nobleman is shown in the front of the boat, his hands clasped together in prayer as the nursemaid reaches forward eagerly upon spying the child. Takafusa vowed to build a temple to Kannon in thanks, a promise fulfilled by his son when Yamakage founded Sojiji.
