10. Odawara

A daimyo's cortège is being carried across the Sakawagawa River. The background is a mass of high, jagged hills, the most distant printed from color blocks only. This station flourished in its position at the entrance to Hakone pass, the most arduous part of the highway. There were few bridges over the rivers in this area because the Tokugawa Shogunate tried to maintain power, thereby protecting Edo from surrounding armies.
