Osaka Meiji 1900s Unknown
Sacred torii gate at Hokoku Jinja, dedicated to Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1536 or 1537-1598) on Nakanoshima, Osaka. The building on the right is the Osaka Hotel.

Hokoku Jinja was completed in 1879 (Meiji 12) after an 1868 (Meiji 1) order of the then brand new Emperor Meiji. The shrine was moved to Osaka Castle in 1961 (Showa 36).

The Osaka Hotel was Osaka’s premier Western hotel. It opened in 1881 (Meiji 14) as the Jiyutei Hotel. In 1895 (Meiji 28) it was renamed the Osaka Hotel. It boasted electric light, steam heating as well as English speaking personnel.
