Tuesday (Then and) Then and Now

We spent one day over the Golden Week holidays in Yokosuka. It was a gorgeous day - cloudless blue sky, sunny, and a light breeze in the air. Not too hot, but not chilly in the slightest. It was the perfect day trip - no crazy Golden Week traffic, silent greenery, shrines, a delightful quirky little teahouse, and beach combing.

One of the shrines was at the top of long long flights of stairs and gave a beautiful view of Yokosuka and the ocean. By the lookout point was a signboard with a copy of a Hiroshige image of the same view...

While not the same view, the Nagasaki University's Metadatabase of Japanese Old Photographs has a few photographs overlooking Yokosuka and the bay...
