PURCHASE A LICENSE

Tokyo Showa 1920s Unknown
Soldiers exercising at the Toyama Firing Range (戸山射撃場, Toyama Shagekijo) in Okubo (大久保), Tokyo. In 1874 (Meiji 7), what was then called Toyamagahara (戸山ヶ原) was requisitioned by the army. A shooting range for the Imperial Guard was established here in 1889 (Meiji 22).

The firing range was developed into a state-of-the-art facility, believed to have been the biggest in Asia. It consisted of seven 300 meter long reinforced concrete buildings into which soldiers shot their automatic and other weapons.
