TŌKAIDŌ GOJŪSAN TSUGI no UCHI. Fifty Three Stations on the Tōkaidō. Ō-ban Yokoye. 55 Sheets in a Set.
In the time of the Tokugawa Shogun there were two highways connecting Yedo, the seat of the Shogunate Government, and Kyōto, the seat of the Imperial Palace. One of them was called the Tōkaidō, the main road, along the Pacific coast, and the other the Kiso Kaidō running through the mountains. The Tōkaidō contained 53 post towns between the two termini. The Tōkaidō Series consists of 55 sheets, because it contains the pictures of Nihombashi of Yedo and Shijō of Kyōto, the two termini.

These are the first edition of the Tōkaidō series and by this Hiroshige's fame spread throughout the land. In the beginning the prints was issued jointly by the Senkakudō (japanese text) and Hoeidō (japanese text). When the greater part of the series was printed, the former withdrew leaving the remainder to the latter to finish independently. Later there appeared various prints of different designs of the Tōkaidō Series by the same artist. But none surpassess the first series in fame and popularity.

The above prints belong to the series entitled Tōto Meisho or Kōto Meisho showing famous sights of Yedo and are of the Ō-ban Yokoye size. Scores of them first appeared from the fourth year of the era of Tempō (1833) to the end of the same era (1843). The first prints bear a red stamp of a publishing house styled Kikakudō (japanese text). But later prints have a black stamp styled Sanoki (japanese text) instead of Kikakudō. But in fact both represent the same publisher, Kikakudō being his firm's name and Sanoki an abridged form of his private name styled Sano-ya-Kihei. From these days the publisher discontinued to use his firm's name in favour of the abridged form of his private name.
