In 1959, Sekino began the series Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido. He would issue a few designs every year until it was completed in 1974. The following year, the Ministry of Education Award was granted to Sekino in recognition of his achievements "in using every possible technique in woodblock printing, Japanese traditional art, and the recreation of the old fifty-three stations on the Tokaido highway in a present-day light." - Merritt, Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints, 1990; pp. 239-242.
