During the summer of 1984, Walt Padgett bicycled and camped Japan's Tokaido, documenting the famous "53 Stations of the Tokaido" prints of Ando Hiroshige and Junichiro Sekino. Since that time Mr. Padgett has been producing his own series of woodblock prints from his travels on this historic highway. The Tokaido, literally the "eastern sea route" stretching 320 miles, has provided the main link between the cities of Kyoto and Edo (Tokyo) for a thousand years.
