Nagoya Meiji 1890s Kozaburo Tamamura
View of the five-storied pagoda of Oosu Kannon (大須観音) and environs in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture. It is one of the most important temples of the Shingon-Buddhism sect. Originally located in neighboring Gifu Prefecture, the temple was moved to Nagoya in 1612 (Keicho 17) by order of Tokugawa Ieyasu after a flood in 1605 (Keicho 10) had swept away the old structure. The temple was destroyed by fire in 1892 (Meiji 25), rebuilt and destroyed again by firebombing during WWII.
