Description
Seven children play in a grassy field next to a stream. Kotori is a children's game. One child is the tagger (oni) and another is a protector (oya). All other children are linked up after the protector. The tagger tries to catch a child at the end of the line. When the tagger catches someone, he is awarded the place next to the protector while the child he caught becomes the next tagger. Full title: Shigatsu (The Fourth Month), from the series Furyu Juni-ka-getsu (Fanciful Twelve Months)
