The Shank's Mare Tokaido - Jippensha Ikku's famous novel "Tokaidochu Hizakurige" or "Shank's Mare Tokaido" chronicled the comic adventures of his two heroes, Yajirobei and Kitahachi, as they made their way from Tokyo to Kyoto and then Osaka along the famed Tokaido road in the early 19th century. The two commoners Yaji and Kita experienced a series of comic misadventures as they traveled from one station to the next.
