- "The Musashi Plain west of Edo, now Kanto Plain on which Tokyo sits with its suburbs, was said to be haunted by magic foxes that occasionally took human form or adopted human qualities. In this successful design Yoshitoshi depicts a moonlit vixen that seems to be admiring herself in a pool." -Annotations© 2008-2017 Leo Verwoerd
