The 'Genji of the East (Azuma Genji)'- series belongs to the best shungawork Kunisada designed and were probably commisioned by a wealthy merchant. One feels that these are brief and very intense love scenes, judging from the character's facial expressions and the muscle tension in their bodies.

 “This design includes a magnifying glass cartouche that offers an interior view of their coupling.”

The Genji of the East -series by Kunisada is well known for the several unusual, close-up designs in a style that was never before seen prior to this series. These unique designs deviate from the traditional style of shunga, excluding the faces and figures of the lovers and focusing in whole on their sexual anatomy.
