During the Edo period (1603-1868), one of the major roads of Japan was Tokaido Gojusantsugi (fifty-three stations of Tokaido Road) which connected Edo (Tokyo) and Kyoto with 53 post stations. Between the station towns of Miya and Kuwana was a sea route. We will walk and talk on our way to Miya. Let us know more about how people traveled and what a station village was like.
