The head of a daimyo's procession crossing a torrent by a bridge towards the village, secluded in a grove of trees, 
under a heavy downpour of rain. This station, situated in the mountain forest, was known for its exuberant spring rainfall. 
Against heavy rain, wearing green and red raincoats the front of the procession of a feudal lord is crossing a small bridge
spanning a torrent, surrounded by high Japanese cypress (or cryptomeria) trees.

One of the most coveted designs of the horizontal Tokaido-series !
