On the way back from Tokyo Gate Bridge to Shin Kiba Station(新木場駅), I passed through Wakasu Kaihin Park(若洲海浜公園) where we can enjoy dozens of attractive objects and views!
At first, there is a miniature version of Tōkaidō which is a major route from Tokyo to Kyoto since Edo period, 400 years ago. There were 53 stations except the start station, Tokyo, and the terminal station, Kyoto, along this route so that this route was called « Tōkaidō Gojūsan-tsugi(東海道五十三次)/53 stations of Tōkaidō« . This miniature path is 1/250 of the real route whose length is 495km/307miles.
The path starts from these objects which look like snail. Plus, Ukiyo-e(浮世絵) is placed at every station.
As you notice, it’s tough to take 55 pictures, click here and enjoy all Ukiyo-e!
I seldom see a mural in Japan. But, here…
