About This Image

Sakurada Mon Gate is one of gates of the Tokyo Imperial Palace and is part of what was formally known as Edo Castle, built in 1457.

During the 1920s there were hundreds of photography clubs and photographic art-study groups throughout Japan. The Tokyo Archive is a large collection of photographs from the 1920s and '30s that came primarily out of these clubs. Most of the photographs are anonymous, and they are all unique, vintage prints. Photographic prints from this period in Japan are quite rare, as much of this work was destroyed during WWII.
