The area between Isezaki-cho and Nigiwai-cho, which prospered from the second decade of the Meiji Period, had many theatres, teahouses and restaurants. This photograph captures the lively atmosphere of the street before the fire of 1899. This is the vicinity of Isami-za in Matsugae-cho (present-day Isezaki-cho 2-chome), taken between 1887 and 1897.
