Title: Nitta Tadatsune and the Goddess of Mt. Fuji
Nitta Tadatsune encounters the goddess of Mount Fuji and her dragon in a cave in the mountain. (Kennin sannen Minamoto no Yori-ie-kyô Fuji-no mi-kari no...). In the center panel a waterfall and rapids tumble, and stalactites hang from the ceiling. Two companions seem to have expired at right. Rays shine from the goddess, but whether they are for blessing or cursing is difficult to interpret.
