The Tokaido Road Travel Exhibition

Art, Museum

Take a trip back in time and journey along the historic Tokaido Road through this special exhibition at the Postal Museum Japan. The Tokaido was the most important of the five routes which connected Kyoto to Edo (now modern-day Tokyo) during the Edo Period. Travelers could rest at 53 stations along the route which became a popular subject in art and literature. This exhibition introduces the stations and scenery along the route with displays of related stamps, artworks including ukiyo-e by Hiroshige, and postal ephemera from the Edo and Meiji era. In addition there is a 3D projection mapping installation which brings the legendary Tokaido road back to life.

The exhibits will be changed during the exhibition period. First half October 12-November 6, Second half: November 9-December 4.
