Yokohama Meiji 1890s Kimbei Kusakabe
Motomachi Sengenzaka in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. The shinto shrine on top of the hill is Sengen-jinja. The place was popularly known as Hyakudan (“One hundred steps”).
The steel bridge in the foreground is Maedabashi, designed by Tetsuo Tsuchida in 1890. The original Maedabashi was made of wood and built when the Horikawa canal, separating the foreign settlement from the Japanese section of Yokohama, was dug in 1860.
