Lit. Shank's Mare. A ribald classic by Jippensha Ikku \ԎɈ (1765-1831) tracing the adventures of the two bumpkins Yajirobee \Yq and Kitahachi k as they journey around Japan. Published in numerous installments between 1802 and 1822, this definitive work of the *kokkeibon m{ (comical book), genre describes countless locales where the "lustful, unscrupulous but somehow lovable heroes" run afoul of local customs with comic results. The first series TOUKAIDOUCHUU HIZAKURIGE CGI, published from 1802 to 1809, follows Yajirobee and Kitahachi's exploits along the highway from Edo to Kyoto and Osaka (see *Toukaidou Gojuusantsugi C܏\O), while the second series ZOKU-HIZAKURIGE GI, 1810-22, includes volumes on the Kiso highway (Kiso kaidou ؑ\X) as well as pilgrimages to Konpiraguu 䗅{ and to Miyajima {. In 1814 Ikku added an introduction to the whole series, filling in the lives of his heroes. The best loved episodes--the two men scalding themselves in an old-fashioned bath at an inn in Odawara c, Yajirobee being bit by a turtle in Mishima O, frightened by the ghostly appearance of a robe yukata drying at Hamamatsu l, and getting stuck in a hole in the pillar at the Houkouji L Daibustuden 啧a, Kyoto -- were illustrated by *ukiyo-e G artists, most notably Utagawa Hiroshige ̐Ld (also known as Andou Hiroshige, 1797-1858).
