Kakegawa lies four miles west of Nissaka. The bridge in Hiroshige's print is probably over the Shioi River, which was just outside the town. The mountain at the right is Mt. Akiba, which was about twenty miles away from Kakegawa on the east bank of the Tenryu River. Since Kakegawa was the turning off place for the well-known Akiba Shrine, which was at the top of Mt. Akiba, the reisho and gyösho versions both show the torii that marked the The mounentrance to the shrine.
Although this print is not among the most interesting in the series,
the people in it furnish an excellent example of Hiroshige's tendency to add vitality by means of exaggerated postures and movements.
