In this print, Sasaki Takatsuna is seen riding the horse of his commander, the famous warrior Minamoto no Yoshitsune. He is crossing the overflowing Uji river as he is inspecting the easiest area to cross for the rest of the army. Takatsuna wants to be ahead of his companion and prove his skills, getting into a race with another fellow samurai whom he eventually defeats by distraction and making him believe that his saddle came loose to slow him down.
