The Old Tokaido on the Old Tokaido depicted on a Totsuka Juku Confluence Manhole Cover

Based on a famous Ando Hiroshige Woodblock Print, modified to showcase the Hakone Ekiden.

 

I looked in all of the wrong places the last couple of times I searched for this... but it is now one of my favorites.

 

Notes:

• The Hakone Ekiden is a two day university relay marathon begun in 1920 and now held every year between Otemachi, Tokyo and Lake Ashi, Hakone on January 2nd and 3rd.
