Serge Astieres' website has more detail on the Kisokaido Road (English | Français)

The 534 km long Kisokaidō Road linked the shōgun's capital of Edo (present day Tokyo) and the imperial capital Kyoto. On the highway there were sixty-nine halting places. These halting places, together with the starting point at the Nihonbashi (Japan Bridge) in Edo, make up the seventy subjects found in the series of views of the Kisokaidō Road. Unlike the coastal Tōkaidō Road, the Kisokaidō travels inland through central Honshū. It is sometimes referred to as the Nakasendō and it's name can be translated as "central mountain route".

This series was a collaboration between Hiroshige and Keisei Eisen who produced twenty-three of the seventy prints.

The images can also be accessed through a map of the Kisokaido Road.
