1890's. Sanmaibashi on the Tokaido. A beautiful view on a rural road near Sanmaibashi (三枚橋) in Yumoto (湯本), Hakone. The photographer (Nobukuni Enami) has caught the attention of a group of children, women, farmers and travelers standing on the road. They are clearly very curious. Located in Kanagawa Prefecture, not too far from Yokohama, Hakone was—and still is—a popular spa resort.
