Tōkaidōchū Hizakurige 東海道中膝栗毛
Shank's Mare

a picaresque comic novel (kokkei-bon) written by Jippensha Ikku (十返舎一九, 1765–1831), about the misadventures of two travelers on the Tōkaidō, the main road between Kyoto and Edo during the Edo Period. The book was published in twelve parts between 1802 and 1822.
The two main characters, traveling from Edo to Kyoto on their pilgrimage to the Ise Shrine, are called Yajirobē (彌次郎兵衛) and Kitahachi (喜多八).



Yaji and Kita's travels
As they make their way, they leave behind a trail of crude jokes and plentiful puns.

Post-stations (shukuba) offering lodging and other facilities were established along the roads at equal distances. Middle stages and tea houses between post-stations facilitated shorter journeys. Travellers were controlled at checkpoints (sekisho) usually positioned at natural barriers on the roads (such as Hakone and Arai). The road infrastructure included bridges, river crossings, markers at every ri (3927 m) and road maintenance, as well as paving and roadside trees. Travelling was confined to foot for commoners and to horses (which had to be changed at each post station) or palanquins for high-status travellers. There were ferry services at water crossings (Ise Bay, Lake Hamana), but travellers had to hire porters at large rivers like Oi and Abe.
The trip from Edo to Kyoto took about 12 days at an average speed of 25 miles a day.

Rokugoo, Rokugō, Rokugo no watashi 六郷の渡し Rokugo River Crossing  
六郷渡舟 Rokugo no Watashi - ferry boat

near the coast, where the Tokaido crosses the river, it is far too wide and deep to cross on foot or on horseback.
