Enlarged view of the photo

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 (Catalog No:3247). 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 (Catalog No:3220) and not-colored (Catalog No:3222) in collection too.
