This photograph taken around 1887 shows the Middle Gate at Suwa Shinto Shrine. This is the main shrine in Nagasaki and it is famous for its autumn Kunchi Festival. This is a staged photograph with people posing on the stairs in front of the Middle Gate. The Western-style lamp on the left is indicative of the tide of modernization in Nagasaki.
