It was first published by Shunyodo in 1915, and it included a total of eight kuchi-e prints by many of the period's most respected bijin-ga artists such as Hashiguchi Goyo (the character Aiko), Hirezaki Eiho, Ikeda Shoen, Kaburagi Kiyokata (actually, machine print, not woodblock), Natori Shunsen (the character Kamata), Nakazawa Hiromitsu, Yamanaka Kodo (the character Miyayama), and Igawa Sengai (the character, Hayama Motosuke). There were several editions of this novel published.
The most sought-after prints from this novel are two of the woodblock prints by Goyo and Eiho. Goyo made only handful of kuchi-e in his short but illustrious art career.
