Tokaido: Adventures on the Road in Old Japan
A thematic tour in essays and colorplates down Japan’s most famous highway. Be awed by a daimyo’s grand procession. Bargain for a souvenir. Marvel at Mount Fuji. Visit a shrine. Smile at the sad gaiety of a none-too-attractive whore as she offers herself to a travler for the night. And, if you are of a mind to, retrace your steps through the collection to see how wonderously Hiroshige has guided us down the Tokaido.
