Why this is a
Masterpiece

Edo Castle, which was long home to the Tokugawa Shogun, was acquired by the new government during the Meiji Restoration. After that it became home to the Emperor, though the majority of the grounds were left to deteriorate and be reclaimed by nature. With just two years remaining before the scheduled destruction of the buildings that remained of what was once Edo Castle, this photo album was put together specifically for the purpose of preserving records of a piece of Japan’s cultural heritage, making it a forerunner in the field of documentary photography. It is important Cultural Property

History of the Object
This work is a collection of photos compiled in 1871 by Ninagawa Noritane (1835-1882), a Meiji Government official, with the help of photographer Yokoyama Matsusaburo and painter Takahashi Yuichi.
