    Matsusaburo Yokoyama who was one of the initiators of Japanese business photographer, the best pupil of Renjo Shimooka was born in (1838) in Etorofu of the Chishima Islands in 1838. When moved to rear-carried daimyo box building (notation of ※ Hakodate at the time), and Commodore Perry black ship to lead visited a shore in (1854) in 1854, war photographer E. Brown. We seemed to witness the spot where Jr photographed scenery of government official and box building.

    When there was artistic taste since childhood, and Yokoyama did Western painting and photograph in one of eyes with box building after the opening of a port, we came to aim at the acquisition of the technique. Is (1864) Yokohama through hardships in 1864; to Renjo Shimooka "was apprenticed, and moved to Ueno Shinobazunoike immediately, and named "leading to the sky tower" after opening photo studio in Ryogoku, Tokyo in (1868) in 1868. Yokoyama who learned lithographic printing wrestled in new photograph technique including photograph oil painting that was carbon mark image and rubber stamp image, original technique that let oil painting fuse with photograph from lotus stick eagerly and challenged experimental expression of many. We added foreign film private supplementary school to (1873) in 1873 and laid emphasis on instruction of pupil and produced Tsukuba Kitaniwa and chushima*nyu of photographer, Shiichi Kamei and shitakokuhigumakoreho and others of xylograph, lithograph painter.

    In addition, Yokoyama photographed Edo-jo Castle in (1871) in 1871. Noritane Ninagawa gives shooting permission wish to large politicians and bureaucrats and realized this to be evacuated by Meiji new government troop, and to leave figure of Edo-jo Castle going to ruin other than the western citadel of the castle which is the Imperial Palace for (1868) as record in 1868, and it is said that shooting increased Kuichi Uchida on this occasion. Furthermore, in shrines and temples treasure investigation of the Kinki district called "jinsarukensa" which holding served as the exhibition choice to planned international exposition in Vienna in (1872) in the next year in 1872, and was performed, Yokoyama undertook photography. There is thing which makes important cultural property, and will have in these photographs now.

    Yokoyama who pursued art expression that still studied new technique and technique from the West in those days at Japanese turning point called Meiji from the late Tokugawa period including device of shooting and photograph oil painting of rare stereograph, and was new daringly. He left many excellent works at photograph in Japan and the dawn of Yoga. By this display, you can see 114 points including Shinobazunoike that there was mainly on articles which Japan exhibited at figure of Edo-jo Castle which went to ruin which we cannot see now anymore and Vienna World Exposition (1873 holding) boasts of in those days unprecedented Nikko mountain, jinsarukensa of photography, leading to the sky tower at the time.
