SHIRO TABI! -Touring the Castles Along the Tōkaidō-

Prior to the Ikkoku Ichijō Rei (Law of One Castle per Province) passed by the Edo government in 1615, there were many castles all around Japan, especially in the civil war
era. However, once the law was passed, castles were eventually centralized for Domains and became symbolic representations of each specific area. This special exhibition features the castles that were captured within Ukiyoe-Hanga of the Tōkaidō as landmarks and symbolic icons of the scenes.
For both sessions, a total of 22 Ukiyoe-Hanga pieces depicting castles will be displayed including 12 pieces that feature both the Tōkaidō and the castles in the large exhibition room.
In addition to the “Screens of Tōkaidō” owned by Shizuoka City, reference materials of excavations and research discovered within the Sumpu Castle (with connections to Tokugawa Ieyasu, one of the things Shizuoka City takes pride in, as the city that raised him) remains will be displayed in the small exhibition room.
We hope you enjoy this grand castle tour.
