As written in the Meisho-ki (A guidebook for famous and beautiful places in the Edo period), “From here, we can see a beautiful view of Mt. Fuji. This scenery is the best in the Tokaido”. The scenery of Suruga Bay opening out widely, and the water’s edge by Numazu calms us and lightens our mood. Hiroshige depicts some travelers on the pass on the left, looking down the sharp, daunting cliff. The two pine trees on the rock in the foreground are effective and accentuate the structure of the image. This excellent structure is also created by setting the left side of the image higher, placing boats with full sails on the ocean on the right, and drawing Mt. Fuji right in the center. The selection of the colors is also refreshing: deep colors in the cliff on the left and the rocks in the foreground, the wide ocean spread out in deep blue, and the white of Mt. Fuji in the center.
