Taken in the early Meiji Period, this photograph shows the Urakami River just downstream from present-day Nagasaki. Urakami-Yamazato Village lay at the mouth of the river, and the downstream area was called Yanagawa at the time. The camera is looking upstream. Urakami Shinden (new fields) is on the right, and the Takenokubo area on the left. The scenery of the Urakami River area is captured before its reclamation from the harbour in 1897.
