  • Japanese: 島原陣図屏風 (Shimabara jinzu byoubu)

The Shimabara jinzu byôbu ("Folding Screen Painting of Shimabara Military Camp") is a painting in the collection of the Asakura City Akizuki Museum. It is perhaps the only extant Japanese painting to show a warrior procession marching to battle, rather than in a more ceremonial context.
