  • Description
    From the set of prints "53 Stations of the Tokaido." View out to sea through a dip in the hill, at the foot of which a daimyo's procession is passing; clumps of trees to right and left. The view of the seascape from Shiomizaka Slope near this station was one of the most picturesque of all the fifty-three stations, with the blue Pacific Ocean framed by outreaching branches of pine trees. A long procession of a feudal lord descends the hill towards Shirasuka Station.
