Station #19 of the OLD TOKAIDO ROAD

A visit to MAKINOHARA to view MT FUJI

In my quest to see all 53 STATION of the OLD TOKAIDO ROADthis is number 19



You can see a great view of Mt. Fuji from SHIMIZU.. Shimizu has been a busy port town.

There were no old buildings left in the Ejiri shuku (inn) area, even no signs for them.

The name Ejiri is used only for addresses for houses in the area. There are, however, many sightseeing spots near Ejiri, including Tesshu-ji and Miho-no-matsubara.



Distance from Nihonbashi: 164.1 km

Shimizu by HIROSHIGE



The ejiri post town was located in what is now Shimizu city..Seen in the distance is the IZU mountain range, while on the promonitory jutting out in the middle distance is the PINE GROVE of MIHO...

Depicted in the foreground is a calm inlet seen beyond the roofs of houses..

The large number of fishing boats moored in SHIMIZU port and the numerous sails of boats on the sea indicate the prosperity of this fishing port..

Composed of mountains, sea and boats, this unsual picture is a pure landscape devoid of human figures..
