Notes: Castle-toppler, keisei, was a poetic term for a high-ranking courtesan. The name referred to the way that rulers can be beguiled by beautiful women to forget the affairs of state, with catastrophic results.

This opulent design has been made yet more luxurious by the use of a pigment containing brass dust for the obi and the bamboo pattern of the outer brocade robe. The metallic pigment was intended to imitate gold thread.
