Akasaka Mitsuke was one of the watchtowers at Edo Castle and had an outer gate. The gate, Akasaka Gomon, was destroyed in 1872, leaving only the stone wall. This photograph was taken from the site of the former gate (present-day Akasaka Mitsuke intersection). On the right is Benkei Moat and on the left Tameike (pond). The cherry trees were apparently planted in 1881. Since the photograph does not show Benkei Bridge, constructed in 1889, this photograph was probably taken around 1887.
