Kasatori Pass (752m) is located between the post towns of Ashida (Tateshina-machi, Nagano Prefecture) and Nagakubo (Nagato-machi) on the Nakasendo Highway. The pine trees along the highway appear in the woodblock prints entitled "The 63 Post Towns of Nakasendo" by Ando Hiroshige. The mountain in the background is Mt. Asama (2568m), an active volcano.
