View of Kobe city as seen from the harbor, sometime between 1908 and 1918.

The building with the orange roof at the foot of the mountains far left is the Tor Hotel (built in 1908). The big building on the right of the center is the Oriental Hotel (built in 1907).

The office buildings of the trading company Mitsui Bussan (built in 1918) and the famed shipping companies Nippon Yusen (built in 1918) and Osaka Shosen Kaisha (built in 1922) have not yet been built.

I have a small favor to ask

Old Photos of Japan aims to be your personal museum for Japan's visual heritage to increase our understanding of Japanese culture and society.

Finding, acquiring, scanning, restoring, researching and conserving these vintage images, and making the imagery and research freely available online, takes serious time, money and effort.

I do this without charging for access, selling user data, or running ads.

Your support helps to make this possible, and ensures that this important visual heritage of Japan will not be lost and forgotten.

If you can, please consider supporting Old Photos of Japan with a regular amount each month. Or become a volunteer.

Thank you,
Kjeld Duits
