Description:
A horizontal view of travelers resting to smoke and enjoy the view. From a series of 12 prints. Publisher is Tsuruya Kiemon (Tsuruki) Senkakudo (c. 1720s-1852).

Label Text:
The popularity of Hiroshige’s famous series led to many elaborations on the theme. Here Kuniyoshi, best known for his figurative prints, shows several of the Tōkaidō stations that surround Suruga Bay. The stations are listed along with various local products.
