Nishiki-e, horizontal oban; colored ink on paper.
Located 3 1/2 miles from Numazu, Hara is the ideal location for viewing Mount Fuji. The magnificent mountain is seen here with clarity and stability. Hiroshige depicts the snow-covered Fuji rising right through the frame of the picture to emphasize its height. Below Fuji's foothills, an expanse of marshy, reed-filled land, a feeding-ground for cranes, extends right to the edge of the Tokaido Road.
In the foreground on the road are two women with their servant, who carries their belongings in two boxes on a pole across his shoulder.
