The figure in the photo is modeled on Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-98), a well-known warlord. He is in a warrior general's everyday wear called "dohbuku." He wears a red "zukin" hood which covers his head, a "kosode (=small sleeves)" garment of smooth and glossy "rinzu", refined silk fabrics, and "sashinuki" trousers. He carries a sword at the waist and he wears a "dohbuku" coat, made of "Ezo-nishiki" brocade, with wide sleeves.. He has a "bonbori" fan in his hand. In those days, Toyotomi Hideyoshi is considered to have worn such a costume in the large tea party of Kitano, or at Daigo's cherry blossom viewing, etc.
