This image still kind of baffles me. According to the title on the negative this is a view on the Dotonbori canal in Osaka. But all other photographs of Dotonbori show a much wider canal and very different buildings.

The scene on this image actually very much resembles images of Kita-Shinchi, Osaka’s famed entertainment area in the North of the city. If you happen to have information about this image, please do let me know.

For images of the Dotonbori canal, see Osaka 1880s • Dotonbori Canal and Osaka 1890s • Ebisubashi Bridge.

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
