This is a high peak, around the base of which a daimyo's cortège is wending its way through a gorge. On the left is Lake Hakone with Mt. Fuji in the distance. The Hakone Pass was the most arduous stretch of the entire Tokaido. It was steep and difficult to climb and harbored many roaming bandits. The pass abounded in scenic spots and hot spring resorts, however, and it continues to attract many visitors to this day.
