Two women wayfarers and a coolie carrying their boxes are passing by rice fields, the entire scene being overlooked by the huge snowy mass of Mt. Fuji. The neighborhood of Hara is considered the best vantage point for magnificent views of Mt. Fuji. In the Edo-era, traveling on the highway was considered very dangerous, and women travelers were usually accompanied by their manservants. In this plate, the manservant is wearing cloth with
Hiroshige’s name on it.
