A daimyō procession leading horses for the emperor journeys up the steep mountainside of Mt. Kameyama. The castle of the daimyo Ichikawa rises above the heads of the travelers.

This series is also known as also known as the First Tōkaidō or Great Tōkaidō.

The castle of the daimyo Ichikawa was actually leveled by an earthquake in 1854, but Hiroshige portrays it in this print as if it were still standing.

Mark & Seal Notes: The system of formal censorship for woodblock prints, marking prints with a single kiwame seal, was functional from 1790 to 1805.
Series title is written in reisho clerical script on the upper left of the print.
