As far as I know there is no full size complete English version of the Tokaido series. The best Japanese version in my opinion is "Tokaido gojyu san Tsugi:Hiroshige kara Gendai Made" published by Dai Ichi Houki, Tokyo, 1985. Very expensive but worth every yen. My own book "Rediscovering the Old Tokaido: In the Footsteps of Hiroshige", Global Oriental, Folkestone, UK, 2000, has the complete series in full colour but slightly smaller than post card size.
