NaHaiWriMo – February 6th Writing Prompt

Today’s prompt is “rice,” so I turned to the ukiyo-e master, Hiroshige, for inspiration within his “53 Stations of the Tokaido” series. Travelers along the Tokaido line, from Edo to Kyoto, stopped along the way to rest and refresh. Depicted here is the Ishibe station, in a lonely spot near Lake Biwa.
