Description

The Tōkaidō Road, connecting Tokyo and Kyoto, runs along the scenic eastern coast of Japan. The prints in this exhibition were selected to illustrate a thematic exhibition and catalogue of essays on the Tōkaidō, a guidebook describing travel on the road in the 19th century. The exhibition was supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
