The Ministry of Agriculture and Science sponsored an exhibition of silk cocoons, raw silk, textiles, pottery, and lacquerware from April 1, 1885. The buildings in the background are the exhibition halls. The building in front is the First Exhibition Building, and the one behind it the Second Exhibition Building. This photograph was taken in 1885 in front of the torii gate of Toshogu Shrine, looking north. Although not visible, there is a museum (present-day Tokyo National Museum) at the end of the road.
