As one went down the coast from Kambara, the mountains gradually pressed
in upon the sea. Near Yui, which is a little more than two miles from Kambara, one arrived at Satta Pass, from which one could look out over a beautiful stretch of water called Kiyomigata and see Mt. Fuji. The view here has long been considered the best on the Tokaido.
It appears that in the early Edo period there was no pass here. Records state that travelers waited at the side of the cliff until the tide receded sufficiently for them to walk around it. In 1655, however, when a Korean embassy visited Edo, the government built a route across the mountain.
Here two travelers peer nervously over the side of the cliff, one of them holding the other from behind to keep him from slipping. The print is among the best of the series, and it was reproduced in many different versions, some of which are much simplified in color scheme.
