Established at the intersection of three major highways, Seki was a bustling town. At this station, travelers could decide to follow the path to Y amato province, branch off to the Grand Ise Shrines, or continue along the Tokaido to Kyoto. Though Hiroshige focuses largely on the landscape in this print, government buildings can be to the right of the print. Seki was also home to the third government barrier along the Tokaido.
