Abstract:

"The Tokaido Road offers a comparative study of the Tokaido road's representations during the Edo (1600-1868) and Meiji (1868-1912) eras. During both periods, the Tokaido was a popular topic of representation and was depicted in a variety of visual and literary media. This book, the first to examine the Tokaido's imagery from an academic perspective, aims to highlight how such representations were fundamental in shaping the Tokaido and the realm of traveling in the collective consciousness of the Japanese people."--BOOK JACKET.
