An anonymous painting showing the Joseon Royal Envoy Vessels entering a port of Japan.

At the bottom left are high officials of the eoy heading to shore after changing to a smaller boat.

The apanese wait for them on shore.

This unattributed painting seems to combine two woks by Kano Tanshin (狩野探信, 1785–1835),

“The oseon Royal Envoy vessels drawn on a Folding Screen” (朝鮮通信使船団図屏風),

and is presumed to date from the 18th century.
