: What I really would like to know is:
: 1. What's the name of the story?
: 2. Who are the two persons?
: 3. What's the date of the shunga?
: 4. Is the designer (indeed) Kunisada?
: 5. Anything else interesting about the shunga ...


I cannot answer any of these questions, but I wonder if the apparition really is a ghost.

The woman seems to be reading a book, while ... whatever she is doing. Maybe it's a novel, and the apparition is the hero of the novel, coming to her in her imagination?

I am not able to read the text, but from what I assume to be name tags, the name of the man seems to be Ka-something-nomi, and the woman Tana-something.

The mon on the man's dress could perhaps be a clue to his identity.
