Basho described his journey in Oku No Hosomichi as 'sanzenri', an expression coined by author Murasaki Shikibu to mean 'an unimaginable distance'.
Sanzenri translates to 3000ri, a distance of approximately 11700km.
Basho would walk roughly a fifth of that distance before reaching Ogaki, in the snowy northern prefecture of Mutsu, 155 days after he departed Edo.
