110705-0022 - Tsukishima Temple


Hyogo Meiji 1900s Unknown
Boats at anchor at Tsukishima Temple (築嶋寺) in Shimagami-cho (島上町) in Hyogo (兵庫), Kobe. Made famous by an ukiyoe print in the Tokaido Meisho No Uchi series ( 東海道名所之内) created by Chikamaru Yukawa (湯川周麿), the temple was destroyed in the Hanshin Awaji Great Earthquake of 1995 (Heisei 7) and rebuilt in concrete. The wooden bridge on this image has been replaced by a huge storm barrier and the temple now has two large concrete buildings on both sides.
