About the Art

The Tōkaidō road, or "Eastern Sea Route," was the most important of the Five Routes of the Edo period in Japan, connecting Kyoto to Edo (modern-day Tokyo). Stations lined the road as rest stops for the weary and the tourist alike.

Kiyotaki Kannon Waterfall was a popular pilgrimage destination during the Edo period, as a nearby cave held statues of 3 Buddhist deities.

Here we see travelers leave the roadside tea houses and hike up a steep trail beside the waterfall at Sakanoshita station.

The "waterfall" itself is little more than a light trickle of water down the craggy rock face.
