The range on the former Nakasendo, on the borders of Sakamoto of Matsuida-cho in Gunma prefecture and Karuizawa of Karuizawa-cho in Nagano Prefecture. It was an important cross road connecting the Kinai and Kanto areas via Shinshu. Because it was a difficult path, a new Usui range road was built, starting in 1884 and completing in 1886. Three waitresses look in the direction of the camera in front of the tea house to the right.
