Original woodblock print of vertical chuban (中判) format made by the artist Utagawa Hiroshige II (二代目歌川広重) and depicting a daimyo (大名) feudal lord who, escorted by his retainers, is welcomed by the manager of the lodging "Daito" (大當), to spend the night at Seki station (関宿), in the ancient Ise Province (伊勢国), on the road between Edo (江戸) and Kyoto (京都).
