The lady Ariko no Naishi wipes her eyes, overcome with emotion. Unable to bear the suffering of her unrequited love, she is about to jump into the waves to end her torment. The moon’s reflection is almost alive, as are the waves, which almost seem to be beckoning to her. Widely considered one of the best designs of the series. The poem reads: “How hopeless it is//it would be better for me to sink beneath the waves//perhaps then I could see my man from Moon Capital --Ariko”
