Kanbara-juku was the fifteenth of the fifty-three stations of the Tōkaidō.
The original Kanbara-juku was decimated by a flood in the early part of the Edo period, but was rebuilt shortly thereafter.
The classic ukiyoe print by Ando Hiroshige (Hoeido edition) from 1831-1834, depicts a mountain village at nightfall, through which three people are struggling under deep snow. It is a rather strange composition, as Kanbara is located in a very temperate area warmed by the Kuroshio current offshore, and even a light snowfall is extremely rare.
