This is a view from Mt. Kazagashira looking over the city centre and harbour. Land reclamation has progressed in the Shinchi area, and new buildings are being erected. But the old stone embankments still remain. Dejima Island and Dejima Bridge are visible along with Shin-Ohashi Bridge (built in 1869) and a white Western-style residence in Tsuki-machi. The date is 1871or 1872. War vessels and ships are anchored in the Nagasaki Harbour, and the Akunoura shipyard and Inasa area are visible on the opposite shore.
