Seven plays based on legends from the life of 9th-century poet Ono no Komachi served as the source for this print series. Hinazura looks at a caged bird, symbolizing the play The Parrot, in which Komachi responds to a poem sent to her by the Emperor Yozei with a poem with just one syllable changed.
