The main hall of Daikoji, a temple of the Jodoshin Sect located in Kajiya-machi, Nagasaki City. It was donated by Totsuji Yosouemon. In the cemetery is the tomb of Motoki Shozo, pioneer of modern printing in Japan. There is a photograph in which Ueno Hikoma poses just like the man in this photograph, taken by F. Beato at the end of the Edo Period (Cabinet No:66-27). It is assumed that Kuichi used the same composition in this photograph taken when he visited Nagasaki in 1872. There are the same photos of colored (Cabinet No:15-28, 66-2) and not-colored (Cabinet No:66-3) in collection too.
