The Five College Center for East Asian Studies (FCCEAS) is now accepting applications from K-12 educators and the general public for Walking the Tōkaidō: A Self-Guided Multi-Disciplinary Experience. Walk (or run or bike) the 310 miles from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto at your own speed and learn about Japan while you do it! Log your miles on a virtual platform and view the route via Google Street View. At each of seventeen milestones participants will receive an e-mail with historical and cultural information about the places they “visit” during their journey.
