Yokohama Meiji 1900s Unknown
Yokohama’s former main route of entry, Nogemachi-dori. Noge was originally a tiny fishing village along the bay. As the Kanagawa Magistrate’s Office and a Japanese garrison were established nearby, the fishermen learned to trade and offer services. In 1870 (Meiji 3), Iseyama Kotaijingu, a shinto shrine, and Noge Fudo, a buddhist temple, were built nearby and began attracting pilgrims who joined tradesmen on the increasingly busy road. Only two years later, the rail-connection between Yokohama and Tokyo was opened. Yokohama Station was conveniently nearby, helping to create the thriving shopping street on this postcard.
