The Great Buddha at Daibutsuyama, Ueno Shinobazugaoka. The lack of temple housing indicates that the photograph was taken after 1873, probably around 1882 in view of the fact that the photographer is Usui Shuzaburo. The path in front of the Buddha to the left leads to Ueno Seiyoken Restaurant, which opened in April 1873 as the second location of Tsukiji Seiyoken of Kyobashi Unemecho. A sign saying "Seiyoken Annex" is visible to the left of the path. The street in the foreground is Kuromon Dori (Black Gate Street). The grove on the right is Toshogu-no-Mori.
