Mishima is 15.1 km away from Hakone. Mishima was once prosperous due to the travelers passing through the Hakone Pass. We observe a traveler on horseback whose head is drooping from sleepiness under his woven hat, a person in the palanquin with crossed arms who also seems to be sleepy, and a person wrapped in straw matting. In contrast to these still, slow people, there is the shadow of a merchant carrying his delivery. Hiroshige focuses on the people, depicts the scene without strong outlines of objects, and illustrates the background with deep blue and gray tones fading into the morning mist. This distinctive gradation technique is unique to wood block prints, and Hiroshige’s technique is particularly impressive. A man with a woven hat and cane whose figure is fading off into the fog and the shadows of two travelers give a sense of melancholy.
