Post Towns

There where 53 Post Towns (rest stops) on the Old Tokaido route between Edo (modern Tokyo) and Kyoto. Adding the starting point of Nihonbashi (in Edo) and the end point of Kyoto makes 55. The modern Tokaido train line follows the Old Tokaido closely, although there are some helpful additions including Atami, a starting point for Hakone Hachiri Tour , and Shin-Osaka.
