To Odawara over the Sakawa River. From this edition, the magazine started a series of sketches of a journey by three Englishmen, a Japanese official, 2 servants, three horses, and three extra men. The journey took 32 days in the summer of 1871, but they had to cross the Sakawa River by palanquin. When the cameraman was sent to take substitute photos, the river had gone dry, and there was a small bridge across it. From The Far East October 4, 1871. From the republished edition of The Far East.
