Built 1505, Yoshida Castle was the center of Yoshida Domain. As a wealthy port, this station presented the traveler with one of the few bridges on the Tokaido. Hiroshige depicts a daimyo procession crossing the river in the foreground as the Toyo River flows into the distance. Beyond a pine grove, the castle rises through the mist.
