Scene: No. 30 Yamashiro, Flowers of Kinkaku-ji, Princess Yuki - Princess Yuki has been tied to a cherry tree in the garden of the Golden Pavillion in Kyoto. She draws a picture of a mouse with the flower petals at her feet. The mouse comes to life, multiplies, and the mice chew through the ropes. Notice the rope still on the tree and on the ground. This is one of the best designs from this series.
