Illustrations et voyage au Japon : Le pèlerinage de Kumano dans la péninsule de Kii

Abstract : The Japanese association between travel and art has been made famous worldwide through the Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaidō road by Andō Hiroshige (1797-1858). In the Kii peninsula roughly South of Osaka, several mandala from the Edo period (1603-1868) helped to build the popularity of the Kumano pilgrimage. This paper focuses on the different kinds of association between travels and art regarding this pilgrimage from the origin to the present. This analyse leads to the question of why Japanese travellers need those works of art to feel attracted to places. The volumes from the Wakayama prefecture illustrated book association (Wakayama-ken ehon no kai) published today, help to understand this close relation between those two worlds in Japan.
