    The Kisokaido was an historic route between the cities of Edo (modern Tokyo) and Kyoto in Japan. The master artist Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) drew on literature, legends and kabuki plays to create his vision of the towns and stations along the road in a collection of 72 colourful ukiyo-e prints. The prints are reproduced here with details and a commentary on each image on the facing page and a brief introduction to the artist and ukiyo-e.
