Nokiyama Zendayu seems to be hardening the points on a group of bamboo spears over a fire. He is dressed very simply, clad in a straw cloak. Perhaps the samurai have run out of more deadly weapons, and this is their last chance. Yoshitoshi sympathized strongly with the samurai who were fighting the Imperial forces with outdated equipment.
