Sensoji Temple seen from Ryounkaku. There are many photographs of Ryounkaku, but few photographs were taken from that building. Kannon-do is in the centre, with the five-story pagoda and Niomon (gate) to the right. The area in front and to the left of Kannon-do was commonly called Okuyama. Street performers made presentations there. The building in the left foreground is Hana Yashiki (Flower House). The five-story Okuyamakaku (Ho'okaku) is visible. This was probably taken soon after the construction of Ryounkaku in 1890.
