 “A bald-headed man is making love to an exotic woman. Look for the mirror in the background!”

This scenes are inspired by Utagawa Kunimaro's 1850s shungabook series 'Nyogo no Shima (Takara) Irifune' (The Island of Women and the Treasure Ship). The designs are characterized by their western 'presences', like those of the sailing vessels in the backgrounds. 
The story is about three sailors who got on board at Shinaga, but their boat got shipwrecked and they drifted to an island inhabited by exotic beauties.
