Portrait of a Shinto priest wearing formal garments.
An elderly man wearing ornate Japanese robes stands in front of a six-panel painted screen.
He has a long white beard and is wearing a tall peaked headdress. His robes are made of Japanese patterned fabric; the yellow and red cloth is decorated with birds or dragons on a geometric background. His purple trousers are decorated with circular designs that look like 'mon' or Japanese crests. He is wearing 'tabi', traditional Japanese socks with a separation between the big toe and the other toes, and is holding a blue fan in his right hand.
The setting of the room is simple; the screen is open in front of a bare wall and there are tatami mats on the floor.
