Enlarged view of the photo

This is a byobu torii gate located at a crossing at present-day National route 1 after going down Gongen Slope after going up the Old Hakone Highway from the post town of Hata. This is a scenic point where Lake Ashinoko and the village of Moto-Hakone can be seen as well as the traffic hub. There seemed to have been teahouses and there are many photos taken at this location. One of the reasons for that is because the photography equipment was quite heavy those days and many photos were taken at the resting spots.
