These prints on the theme of basket subjects by Kunisada were probably designed in autumn 1819, when an exhibition of basketry was held in the Ryōgoku district of Edo (present-day Tokyo). This exhibition also included a giant figure of Shutendōji (Drunken Boy Demon), which was portrayed in a Hiroshige triptych.
