This photo depicts Mt. Futago and the old Hakone Highway viewed from a teahouse in Yumoto. Since the supporting wood for the telegraph line placed between Tokyo and Nagasaki in 1873 is sticking out of the pine tree and suppose it is for the electric pole to be made, it is probable that this photo was taken right after the line was placed. The photos with the same layout with the telegraph pole (catalog #4414) must have been taken later than this one.
