THREE SKIFFS UNDER MOUNT FUJI at KASHIWABARA 柏原 -- A Meiji Era Pictorial
Ca.1898 Photograph by T. Enami, Japan's Meiji-era Master of the small format image. Half-stereoview from an original Enami contact proof sheet. www.t-enami.org
By the way, the lip of Fuji's crater is about 15 miles (24 km) from Enami's camera.
KASHIWABARA is now a part of FUJI CITY in Shizuoka Prefecture. Today, the Shinkansen Bullet Train runs across the scene at the base of the nearer mountain slope. The natural wetlands in front of you have been largely converted into farmlands with scattered clumps of housing --- waterways remain, but they have been moved, straightened out, and formed into canals.
About where you are standing runs an expressway, and the Tokaido Line of the Japan Railway System. Toyota Dealers, Gas Stations, and Convenience Stores are just off frame on both sides of the scene.
