It was about 500 kilometers from Edo to Kyoto. The trip took about two weeks on foot. Having experienced violent wind and rain, illness and a variety of other things along the way, when people finally arrived in the capital and saw the Great Sanjo Bridge over the Kamo River they must have breathed a sigh of relief. In the background we can see Kiyomizu Temple halfway up Mt. Otowa.
