Tokyo Meiji 1870s Unknown
Wooden houses in Anjin-cho in Nihonbashi Kitagawa, Tokyo. Miura Anjin’s Birthplace. Early Meiji. This image was published in The Far East on June 17, 1872 (Meiji 5).

Anjin-cho was named after William Adams (1564–1620), known in Japanese as Miura Anjin. Adams was an English navigator who travelled to Japan on the Dutch ship the Liefde in 1600 and is believed to be the first Briton ever to reach Japan.

A monument to William Adams can still be found at the location of his former Tokyo townhouse in Anjin-cho, today Nihonbashi Muromachi 1-10-8, Tokyo.
