The city of Kofu, Yamanashi Prefecture, seen from Kofu Castle, facing south. The Western-style buildings in the foreground are part of a winery constructed in 1876 in the metal-casting foundry, part of an industrial complex established in Kofu Castle by then-governor Fujimura Shiro. Consequently, the date of the photograph is assumed to be the early Meiji Period. Visible in the background are Sone Hill and Mt. Misaka, located at the southern edge of the Kofu Basin. Mt. Fuji is also visible on the far left.
