Les Cinquante-trois Stations du Tōkaidō
15e station : Kanbara-juku


We've walked 11.2km from the previous station and today we've arrived at Kanbara Station on the Tokaido Highway.


Kanbara-juku (蒲原宿, Kanbara-juku) was the fifteenth of the fifty-three stations of the Tōkaidō. It is located in what is now part of the Shimizu-ku ward of Shizuoka, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It is one of four former post stations located in Shimizu-ku.

After crossing the Fuji River, we arrived at the Kambara Inn. It was late at night when the snow was falling soundlessly, and people in coats and umbrellas were walking in the freezing night. The deep silence of the snowy night is vividly expressed in this work.

Après avoir traversé la rivière Fuji, nous sommes arrivés à l'auberge Kambara. Il était tard dans la nuit, la neige tombait sans faire aucun bruit, et les gens en manteaux et parapluies marchaient dans la nuit glaciale. Le silence profond de la nuit enneigée est exprimé de façon saisissante dans cette œuvre.

347.8km to the final destination, Kyoto.

Ciao! 🙂
