Enlarged view of the photo

This is the mouth of Nagasaki Bay. The land visible in the distance on the right is Kanzaki-no-hana. The island to the left is Takahoko Island, also called the island of Christian martyrdom (Pappenburg, the Pope’s summit). Located at the outskirts of Tomachi, this was a favorite photo spot where many photographers took photos from similar angles, including F. Beato. In this photo we can see the tip of a grave stone in the bottom left and the masts of two Japanese boats in the center.
