Travelers stop at a teahouse at the Futagawa station along the Tokaido, a relatively secluded part of the Tokaido. Though difficult to determine, it is possible that the travelers in the distance are either crossing a grassy plain by foot, or crossing the Umeda River (which is located near the Futagtawa Station) in small boats.Physical Description
Group of people carrying parcels and leading horses in front of a shop. Other travelers can be seen crossing in the distance. There is a tall tree by the store, and across the water is a smal hill with trees on it. The skyline is edged in pink, suggesting dawn or dusk. Writing in upper right and left corners. Title in red box in upper right corner.Primary Object Classification Print Primary Object Typecolor printAdditional Object Classification(s)PrintCollection AreaAsianRights
