The photograph bears the inscription "ODAWARA" but actually portrays the checkpoint at Kanagawadai-machi. In response to a number of murderous attacks on foreigners, the Shogunate enforced security measures and established several checkpoints, including two in Kanagawa. The coast of the Pacific Ocean is on the left.
