The tenma system was designed to set up post towns along major highways in oeder to provide manpower and horses to facilitate the mobility of goverment officials as well as the physical flow of goods and the dissemination of information...
Under this system, 53 post towns were created along the TOKAIDO HIGHWAY......

It was 1832 that HIROSHIGE set out on his first trip to KYOTO along the TOKAIDO HIGHWAY....
A distinguished series of 55 works, born of his observations and experiences, conveys the atmosphere and sentiment prevailing in each post on the highway..
His work portray beatifully in fine detail , he describe seasonal changes as seen in the mist in srping, showers in summer, clear blue skies in autumn and snow in winter.....
