Description: One print from the "Sohitsu Gojusan Tsugi" (Twin Brushes, Fifty-Three Stations) series jointly produced by Toyokuni III (Kunisada I) and Hiroshige. The upper panels, featuring landscapes along the Tokaido, were done by Hiroshige, while the lower parts done by Toyokuni III featured scenes associated with each postal station. The upper panel of this particular print shows a panoramic view looking from Kanagawadai toward Yokohama Honmaku, while the lower depicts a beautiful woman serving a cup of tea to a person in a palanquin. Her attention, however, has been drawn to a yarimochi (spear-carrier) strolling past eating dango (skewered dumplings).

There are a few light creases to the print, and a small hole to the left edge.
