. Otsu Paintings 大津絵 Otsu-E - Introduction .

The name derived from the place where these paintings were sold in the Edo period, in and around the post town of Otsu, which lay on the Tokaido Road. They were welcome cheap souvenirs with a special appeal.
During the 18th century, illustrations were given a moral didactic purpose and explanatory text was introduced about the picture. Often, though, there was a satirical bite: demons were portrayed as monks on alms round,
or as taking a bath with a comment inscribed such as “Many wash the body but not the mind”.

Yanagi Soetsu Muneyoshi 柳宗悦 (1889-1961)
wrote about 大津絵 and Oni at the rituals during Setsubun 追分絵.

In some regions it was custom to stick a painting of an Oni upside-down on a sick part of the body and pray for healing.
