53 stages on the Tokai-do Road  (東海道五十三次)

The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido (東海道五十三次 Tokaido Gojusan-tsugi), in the Hoeido edition (1833?1834), is a series of ukiyo-e woodcut prints created by Utagawa Hiroshige after his first travel along the Tokaido in 1832. The Tokaido road, linking the shogun's capital, Edo, to the imperial one, Kyoto, was the main travel and transport artery of old Japan. It is also the most important of the "Five Roads" (Gokaido)?the five major roads of Japan created or developed during the Edo era to further strengthen the control of the central shogunate administration over the whole country.
