Devastation caused by the Nobi Earthquake (濃尾地震, Nobi Jishin) of October 28, 1891 (Meiji 24) in Kitagata-cho, Motosu-gun, Gifu Prefecture. The photographer stood on the west side of the city and pointed his camera towards Kinka Mountain.

The Nobi Earthquake measured between 8.0 and 8.4 on the scale of Richter and caused 7,273 deaths, 17,175 casualties and the destruction of 142,177 homes.

Kitagata-cho was close to the epicenter and as a result 96.5% of the houses here were damaged. No less than 84% of all the houses were actually totally destroyed.

The quake is also referred to as the Mino-Owari Earthquake (美濃尾張地震, Mino-Owari Jishin).
