Cherry blossoms, Noge Hill, Yokohama, c. 1910. The various religious sites on the hill were not replaced after being destroyed the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake; replaced instead with a large park, overlooking the city and harbor, that remains to this day.

“A visit should be paid to Noge-yama, close behind the Railway Station, for the sake of the general view of the town and harbour. Here stand some small but popular and representative shrines dedicated to the Shinto god of Akiha; to Doryo, a Buddhist saint; to Fudo, the great Buddhist god whose chief shrine is at Narita; and to the Sun-Goddess of Ise. This last which crowns the hill is generally known as Daijingu.”
