7. Shunkan remains on Devil's Island (1886)

Three men were exiled to Kikai Island. Two have been pardoned, but Shunkan had to stay, because he made a poor impression as a prisoner.

He seems to prepare for a dive. Actually, he begs the boatmen and his friends in his desperation to ship him as well, but the little boat (in the middle of the picture) moves toward the horizon.
