This is the old Hakone Highway near Ichinotorii gate at Moto-Hakone, and the cedar trees. The elctric pole is for the telegraph which opened between Tokyo and Nagasaki in 1873. Since the electric line was placed along the Tokaido Highway during the Edo Period, it is visible at Hakone Hachiri in the Old Tokaido Highway. Lake Ashinoko and Hakone Shrine can be seen between the trees. This photo was taken after 1873.
