Ukiyo-e Route

Ukiyo-e Route

The Shoryudo truly offers a diverse array of tourist attractions.

During the early modern period, the artist Utagawa Hiroshige created ukiyo-e paintings that depicted the 53 post towns along the Tokaido highway that connected Edo (Tokyo) with Kyoto, in a style influenced by Western impressionists.
Along the Ukiyo-e Route, you can visit castles and historic battlefields associated with the three great samurai warriors, including Tokugawa Ieyasu, who established peace in early modern Japan—the era in which Hiroshige lived—after surviving a period of war. You can also ride the Shinkansen bullet train that runs alongside the Tokaido highway from that period and see the region's manufacturing industry up close.
Other enjoyable attractions include the World Heritage Sites Mt. Fuji and Enryaku-ji Temple at Mt. Hiei.
