3. Mt Fuji from Hodogaya

"I find a place of twisted pines along the Tokaido, and I halt to view Fuji through them. The travelers who pass in the first hour or so of my vigil do not look like Hokusai's, but no matter. The horse, the sedan chair, the blue garments, the big hats - faded into the past, traveling forever on the print now."

Now hollow fires burn out to black,
And lights are guttering low:
Square your shoulders, lift your pack,
And leave your friends, and go.

Oh never fear, man, nought's to dread,
Look not left nor right:
In all the endless road you tread
There's nothing but the night.

from A Shropshire Lad, by AE Housman

This area is now part of Yokohama, and is one of the 53 stages of the Tokaido. Each of the travelers looks in a different direction, twisted men beneath the twisted trees. Note the retaining walls along the road to the right.
