This photo depicts the post town of Hakone viewed from around the old Hakone check point site. The two-storied house behind the tree in the centre is Hatago Hafuya (present-day Hokone Hotel), an inn for commoners. The huge thatched roofed houses behind are, Kawada Honjin, an officially appointed inn for feudal lords, Koma Honjin, Ishiuchi Honjin, and Amano Heizaemon Honjin. Compared to catalogue # 2945, the backyards of honjins appear to be sticking out to Lake Ashinoko. The mountain behind on the left is Mt. Kurakake and the one in the centre is Hakone Pass.
