View of Otsu from Kannondo at Miidera Temple (official name: Enjoji Temple). Enjoji is the 14th temple in the circuit of 33 Holy Kannon Temples of Western Japan. The canal in the centre is the Lake Biwa Waterway built in 1890 to supply drinking water, generate electricity, and facilitate transportation. The state of the surroundings suggests that this photograph was taken soon after the completion of the waterway.
