Rediscovering the Old Tokaido: In the Footsteps of Hiroshige

Series: Rediscovering (4)
For the first time in an English language edition published outside Japan, all 55 prints of Hiroshige's `Fifty-three Stages of the Tokaido' are reproduced in full colour, supporting a detailed and intriguing account of the author's rediscovery on foot of the historic 303-mile road from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto. Remarkably, the Old Tokaido can still be found in many locations and photographs of the modern parallel the old.
