Odawara


Another picture from the archives, this one taken in the hills outside Odawara. Odawara is located at the southwest tip of Kanagawa Prefecture. It's a gateway to Hakone National Park and Mount Fuji. During the Tokugawa Era, it was a castle town and a major station along the Toukaido, guarding southern access to the Kantou Plain and the capital city of Edo.
