A superb Japanese erotic art shunga surimono picture embellishing the famous 8th century Japanese fairy tale, Urashima Tarō.  In this shunga scene, the protagonist enjoys one of his many rewards (for saving a dying sea turtle) during his stay at the Dragon Palace.  He eventually returns home after several days (so he thought) of satisfying his appetites at the Palace, only to discover that once home he had been gone for over 100 years.
