Dreaming of Walking near Fuji
This concluding chapter argues that in the course of the Edo period, spaces were continuously appropriated, contested, redefined, and consumed through maps and interpretive frames, cultural exploits and the sanctity of the written word, cash transactions, and physical intercourse. The competition between sites of power to lay claim to specific areas of competence and to control and interpret spaces created flexible terrains on which individual interpretations collided and hierarchies were continuously rearranged. Consequently, the power relationships established with and within space also evolved and multiplied, as the landscape became a projection of the travelers’ ambitions. Movements through malleable spaces thus became instruments of debate and platforms of contestation.
