写真の中の明治・大正

Via Mutantfrog, I just discovered this beautiful collection of nostalgic photos from Meiji and Taishō era Tokyo on the National Diet Library’s homepage. The database is searchable by category, by keywords and even with a map of the greater Tokyo area. Nice.
Koganei
(Pictured above, a canal in Koganei west of Tokyo, where I lived during my one-year student exchange. The picture is from 1901. No, it’s not very beautiful in its own right. Yes, it does make me want to to go back to Japan soon.)
