Regimental Commander of the 1st Imperial Guard Artillery--Kumamoto Masanji. Several officers observe their men loosing their cannons upon the unseen enemy. Explosions from returned fire are visible, but all the officers remain unperturbed; one smoking and seated, his sword to his side. The details such as the skittish horses pulling the equipment are nice Kiyochika touch.
