My kids just received Tokaido game from Yokohama History Museum as a gift for New Year. It is dice game. If you are interested, here are few photos of it.
Rules are, as interpreted by my friend:
"This is SUGOROKU game.
picture sugoroku is for several players using a piece of paper with many sections and pictures drawn on it.
Each player advances from the start(furidashi) by the count on the die that he has thrown, and the first one to reach the goal(agari) is the winner.
This is Tokaido Kisoji(Nakasendo) type.
Start(furidashi) is EdoNihonbashi, and goal is Kyoto.
You have to decide which way you go Tokaido and Kisoji first time.
Shake the dice, even(Cho) is Tokaido and odd(Han) is Nakasendo.
There are 53 Tugu(squares) for Tokaido and 69 squares
for Nakasendo so you can reach the goal earlier in Tokaido.
However, the goal(Agari) must end with the exact number,
and if the number of dice is surplus it seems that you have to return the squares as many as that number."
Here is c. 1750 year version of the game
