A scene from Sakurazawa (presently Nakano City of Nagano prefecture, formerly Nobetoku village) of the former Nakasendo. To the left, the flow of the Kiso River can be seen. Many of the paddy field were in the low marshes of off Nobetoku, so after the mid-Edo era, people were suffered from numerous floods when the cultivating new paddy fields reached a limit.
