4. Golden boy seizes the giant carp (1885)

When Kintaro’s life was threatened by an uncle, his mother took him to the Hakone mountains. The golden boy grew up in a cave. He became a great friend of the animals and liked to wrestle with bears. His strength was phenomenal. One fateful day his mother fell in a pool and a monstrous carp swallowed her. 

Kintaro has caught the carp. The death of his mother will be revenged.

How Kintaro observed the carp before he jumped into the pool, Yoshitoshi showed on 'thirty-six ghosts' number eight.
