To show change over time and compare cultures as well as learn more about a very important part of Japanese history and culture, the “Journey along the Tōkaidō” has been created using various primary source materials.
The Tōkaidō Road, from Tokyo to Kyoto in Japan will be examined at various time periods (1830s, 1920s, and present day) as well as show comparisons to the U.S. National Road and Route 66. Lesson plans align to the state standards of Ohio.
