In April 1863,Shogun Iemochi and 3000 retainers traveled in a great procession from Edo to Kyoto. This was the first time since the visit of Iemitsu in the Kanei Era, 230 years before,that a Shogun had visited Kyoto. This Tokaido series, a joint production of several artists and various publishers, commemorates the occasion.
