Not on Viewexpand_more

Located about sixty miles southwest of Tokyo, Hakone has been a popular destination because of its natural hot springs and beautiful mountain scenery. There are seven spas in Hakone, and a number of ukiyo-e artists designed seven-print series featuring them. Depicted here is Ashinoyu hot spring from such a series designed by Hiroshige. The buildings in the foreground are the inns with their hot spring baths that catered to visitors.
