The square pillar in the centre foreground is a mail box. Made of pine and painted black, mail boxes were placed on the streets of Japan for the first time in 1872. Foundation stones were placed under the mail boxes starting in 1887, so the mail box in this photograph was taken after 1887. Same as photograph #2657.
