A vertical oban-size print: a woman ghost in light grey kimono with purple obi rises from below, turns to the right and looks downward; a long cartouche with gradation from red to green bears the title inscriptions. (This print is the top part of an upright diptych, whose lower part depicts a man seated and watching the bonfire, from which the woman ghost rises, in front of him. The man identified as Sawamura Tossho I in the role of Kinugawa Yoemon).
