This plate depicts a street of houses which back onto the seashore, and the tail-end of a daimyo's procession is passing along it. It took two hours from Nihonbashi by foot. Behind the houses are ships moored in the bay. Being the first station on the highway, Shinagawa was thronged with travelers coming and going. The road was lined with many tea houses, restaurants, and entertainment quarters. The bay, seen in Hiroshige's picture, has been reclaimed and now forms a part of Tokyo
