Rokko Mountain Range and Mt. Suwa seen from the south. Present-day Chuo Ward. The park on the right is the residence of Kodera Yasujiro (present-day Sorakuen). The building on the hillside is the restaurant Tokiwaro. A group of French scientists succeeded in observing the Venus eclipse of the sun in 1874 from the area above. A commemorative monument was later erected, and the site came to be referred to as "Kinseidai" (Venus Hill).
