Miura Jiroemon Kanetsune was a low ranking samurai and not the most skilled warrior as demonstrated by Kuniyoshi in this print. Kanetsune is sliding over a hearth and knocking coals over, also refering to the fact he was an excellent chef who only served the freshest ingredients. His determination and courage is clear and he fought bravely on the night of the attack.

(Based on 'The Faithful Samurai' by David R. Weinberg)
