The crucifixion of "Sokichi." The young man seems to have committed some serious crime deserving public execution. This was around 1870 before the birth of the modern judicial system. The location is unknown, but, if it is eastern Shinshu (Nagano Prefecture), is probably the outskirts of the town surrounding Komoro Castle.
