Like photographs #2748 and #3132, this is thought to have been taken between 1877 and 1887 when the reconstruction of the building was underway. However, no donors' signboards are visible. Also, there is a temporary shack on the lower right of the statue, but it is empty. This photograph may have been taken by Usui Shuzaburo (a 19th-century photographer in Yokohama). The Great Buddha is an object of worship and climbing upon it is prohibited today.
