Abura-machi is viewed from the intersection in Higashihamano-machi (present day Hamanomachi street). The water conduit in the foreground is now underground but flooded over in the great flood of 1982. The building on the corner to the right (site of a modern-day McDonald's outlet) retains the atmosphere of the Meiji Period with its sliding paper doors and wooden walls. Drinking water was supplied from Hongochi Dam to the public well in the foreground. A oil lamp used before the arrival of electricity is seen on the left.
