Nikko Meiji 1890s Unknown

Panoramic view of Hatsuishi (鉢石) in Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture. The town was the twenty-first and last shukueki (way station) of the Nikko Kaido (日光街道), the major route connecting connecting Tokyo with the Nikko Tosho-gu shrine complex dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate.

From a series of glass slides published (but not photographed) by Scottish photographer George Washington Wilson (1823–1893). Wilson’s firm was one of the largest publishers of photographic prints in the world.
