Okabe is 8 km away from Mariko. Utsunoya Pass is one of the rough sections of the Tokaido. A stream is gushing through the steep passage between the two mountainsides. The cedar forest on the right mountainside indicates the deepness of the mountain. It might be autumn. There is still green on the mountain, but the leaves of a tree sticking out from the slope are already turning red. We can see a woodcutter carrying firewood followed by men carrying baskets. In contrast, we also see a merchant and a local woman walking up the steep slope from the other side.
