View from the east of Takakannon (official name: Chikamatsudera) looking northwest. Along with the Kannondo of Enjoji, this temple was a popular place to view Lake Biwa. The army barracks where the ninth infantry regiment was stationed in 1875 are visible, but the Lake Biwa Waterway (completed in 1886) has not yet been constructed, indicating that this photograph was taken between those two dates.
