  • Description
    From the set of prints "53 Stations of the Tokaido." The approach through rice-fields along a narrow road lined with trees, to a curved street of huts, overlooking the sea, and travellers entering the village under a downpour of rain. This station was an isolated village on the coast. From ancient times, many poets referred to this seashore in their poems. Now a motorway has been built along the seashore and passing motorists pay less attention to this historic place.
