Join us online for this live lecture.
Join samurai, merchants, pilgrims, and sightseers on a journey along the Tokaido highway, led by Associate Curator of Japanese Art Dr. Yuki Morishima. A favorite subject of woodblock print artists, the Tokaido was a bustling route connecting Edo (present-day Tokyo), the capital of the military shoguns, and Kyoto, the imperial capital of Japan.
