The restaurant Ogiya in Oji during the early Meiji era. Opened during the Kanei years of 1789-1801, it stands at the shore of the Otonashi River (Shaukujii River) and is the head of the Kanto Inari. It was a popular restaurant among people visiting Oji Inari, a famous spot during the Edo Era known in the Rakugo "Fox of Oji" story. The building to the fore does not have a third floor, so this picture must have been taken before the reconstruction.
