190101-0035-PP - Maruyama at Higashiyama


Kyoto Meiji 1880s Unknown

Maruyama (円山) at Higashiyama, Kyoto. In the background, Yaami Hotel (也阿弥ホテル) can be seen.

In 1879 (Meiji 12) Nagasaki businessman Mankichi Inoue (井上万吉, 1835-??) bought several temple buildings in Kyoto’s Higashiyama district and converted them into a hotel, the first Western-style hotel in Kyoto. Together with the Kyoto Hotel, the Yaami was Kyoto’s premier destination for foreigners and well-to-do Japanese.

The building burned down in 1906 (Meiji 39).
