The 514 km long Tōkaidō Road linked the shōgun's capital of Edo (present day Tokyo) and the imperial capital Kyoto. On the highway there were fifty-three halting places. These halting places, together with the starting point at the Nihonbashi (Japan Bridge) in Edo and the finish at Kyoto, make up the fifty-five subjects commonly found in the series of views of the Tōkaidō. Tōkaidō can be roughly translated as "eastern sea route".
