According to the sign of the house on the right, it is Hatago (inn) Yorozuya Chozaemon at Odawara-cho in the post town of Hakone when facing Mishima-cho. The street in the centre is Tokaido Highway. A few people are visible afar. There are photos with many people with the same layout. This was probably taken in autumn of 1871 and the telegraph pole established in 1873 between Tokyo and Nagasaki cannot be seen yet.
