Onodera Jūnai Hidekazu 小野寺十内秀和 (1643-1703), Asano Naganori's Akō House's guard-liaison and one of the Forty-Seven Righteous Samurai, is seen as he passes along the foot of Mount Fuji on his way to Edo. He often wrote to his wife Tan, his letters "sprinkled with tanka - especially the one describing his travels from Kyoto to Edo [to fulfill the vendetta against Kira] in Tenth Month 1702."
The 15th year of Genroku, as I leave the Capital to go down East:
