This photograph depicting the battery of Satsuma and a distant view of Sakurajima was taken by Uchida Kuichi when the photographer accompanied Emperor Meiji on his trip around western Japan in 1872. A middle sized Benzai boat floats on this side of the protruding embankment, and a boat with three masts can be slightly seen in the distance. A flat bottom boat carrying mud and sand crosses the fore.
