Lucas Badtke-Berkow’s presentation on website

Keyword: Tokaido
The old Tokaido highway begins from Nihonbashi Bridge. Established 400 years ago during the Edo period, it was crowded with travelers, and known as the safest, cleanest road in the world. Starting from Tokyo, we set off at a brisk pace along the Tokaido, searching objectively for the past while looking for a hint of the future in our journey. A whole day’s walk can be covered in a mere ten minutes on the Shinkansen train. In this presentation, I would like to speak about ‘walking’ the Tokaido and the discoveries that can be made along the way.
