70216-0062 - Sannomiya


Kobe Taisho 1910s Unknown
This postcard of Sannomiya in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture shows Ikuta-mae, the street leading to the shinto shrine Ikuta Jinja. In the background the shrine’s torii can be seen. One Western style building made of stone stands out among the otherwise traditional wooden architecture. When Kobe opened its port for trade in 1868 (Meiji 1), this was a beautiful sand-road that lead from the shrine to the sea and was lined on both sides with plum and cherry trees and countless stone lanterns.
