Shirasuga station was located in Enshunada facing the coast, but was destroyed in the tidal wave of 1707, so the following year the site was moved inland to the bluff above the Shiomi Slope. In the picture a feudal procession has departed Shirasuga station, and is descending the Shiomi Slope. The procession proceeds forward in two orderly columns.
