The Sokokura Hot Spring was destroyed in a fire in 1881, so this is a photo taken before that year. A comparison with the Hakone Nanayu No Shiori (Guidebook to the Seven Spas of Hakone) written in the seventh year of the Koka period shows that the top right of the stairs is the Yorozuya, further right is the Umeya, Tsutaya, and the building across the road in the foreground is the Soyu (public spa).
