Description:

Kanaya was developed from the Edo period as Kanaya-juku, a post town on the T&amp#333kaid&amp#333. It was located on the bank of the Oi River, Kanaya prospered from the Tokugawa Shogunate’s policy of not allowing any bridge or ferry to be established on the Oi River in order to strengthen Edo’s defences. Consequently travellers waiting to cross the river on foot were often trapped in Kanaya for days, if not weeks, waiting for the river to become shallow enough to ford. All the prints from this series have a telegraph pole design on the right hand side. 1872 (Meiji 5), 10th month From the series Shoga gojusan eki (Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido)
