Oyamashuku was a post town located on the northeastern edge of Shizuoka Prefecture at the northern foot of Ashigara Pass. The pass was an important transportation link on Yagurazawa Okan Road. The house in the centre with the sign "Itsuya" may be an inn, and a teahouse is visible on the right. A house with a kabuki gate is also visible. This may be the Takenoshita district, where there were many inns. The inscription style suggests that this is the work of Felix Beato.
