The photograph and mount bear the labels "Himeishi Daimyojin" and "..at the Temple of KAMAKURA" respectively. An illustrated map from the year 1850 shows the "Himeishi" (Princess Stone) in the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine precincts. It also resembles, in terms of its shape and markings, the "Masakoishi" (Masako Stone) located today on Benten Island in the shrine pond, but the exact details are unclear. This photograph may be the work of Stillfried. The date is unknown.
