View of Konodai and the Tone River - Handsome view of the cliff Konodai overlooking the Tone River. The Konodai or "Provincial Capital Bluff" served as a regional military center in early times as it was easily defended. A few visitors admire the view from the heights beneath pine and maple trees with autumn foliage, Mt. Fuji in the distance at center right. Boats sail along the river below, with a few houses along the water's edge. Even today, standing at this point in Tokyo one gets a beautiful view of the mountain rising majestically beyond the river. A striking design.
