This view shows the approach running through rice fields along a narrow road lined with trees, to a curved street of huts overlooking the sea. Travelers are entering the village under a downpour of rain. The rain is named “Rain of Tiger” after a woman, named Tiger-gozen, who cried for her dead lover Soga Juro (see story listed under Yoshitoshi). This station was an isolated village on the coast. From ancient times, many poets referred to this seashore in their poems. Now, a highway has been built along the seashore, and passing motorists pay less attention to this historic place.
