The palanquin carriers holding torches are climbing the steep mountain road in Hakone pass. From "Tokaido Goju-san Tsugi" 東海道五十三次 ("Fifty-three Stations of Tokaido"), Each print in this series has a short comic poem (in Japanese: "kyoka"). Hence this series is known as the Kyoka Tokaido - also known as the Sanoki Tokaido after the publisher.
