View of Kobe harbour from Mt. Suwa. Mid-Meiji Period. This is the same as photograph #4871, although the tinting of the buildings is different. The Kodera family residence is visible, surrounded by walls on the right of the main street running north-south. The area beyond the residence and to the left (east) is the present-day hub of the Hyogo Prefecture administration and site of both the Prefecture Office and Prefecture Police Headquarters. The photograph, taken about 20 years after the opening of Kobe port, shows the town expanding from the coast to the mountain side.
