Kiyotaki Kannon Waterfall at Sakanoshita on the Tōkaidō - Framed & Mounted Print
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.
