of complete lithograph

Commodore Perry arrived in Hakodadi on May 17, 1854 and remained there until June 3. He was there to negotiate the terms that would apply to US ships in that port. This is one of several lithographs from that visit showing scenes and people of Hakodadi.

The Narrative notes there were four large Buddhist temples and three large Shinto temples in Hakodadi. The Buddhist temples had adjoining grave-yards. The Shinto temples did not. This lithograph appears to depict a Shinto temple as there is no grave-yard. Another lithograph (442 - Chief Temple) shows a Buddhist temple.

The titles/lettering read:

  • Dag by E. Brown, Jr

  • Lith of SARONY & Co. New York.


Right edge (binding edge) is ragged.

Paper thickness is 9mm.

I have noted two types of this lithograph. This is type I. The title to the right reads "Lith of Sarony & Co. New York". In type I the title spells "Lith of Sarony & Co. NY" For more information on the types, click here.
