Scope and Contents:
An assortment of musicians and dancers perform upon tatami mats in front of a painted folding screen.
Item is a triptych, consisting of three panels.
Full title reads, The 'Miyako-odori' dancing in Kioto, which is very peculiar in Japan, is opened for about a month in April, every year; the dancers and musicians are most famous dancing and singing girls in Kioto. The photos show their charming figures as they were taken in the same manner.
The Miyako-odori, or Cherry Blossom Dance, is performed by top geishas and maikos every April in Kyoto. The Miyako-odori, begun in 1872, was meant to alleviate the gloominess and depression following the great capital switch, when Kyoto was replaced by Tokyo as the new capital of Japan. This dance also serves as an opportunity for ordinary people to witness top-class geisha and maiko performances usually reserved for the elite of society.

Scope and Contents:
Collage of images produced by studeo of Tamamura Kozaburo of photographs by both Felice Beato and Baron Raimund von Stillfried. These images include, clockwise from upper left corner, two Buddhist priests, a nobleman, two child acrobats (von Stillfried), a woman in winter dress with umbrella, a female musician with shamisen, an officer with sword, and a couple with umbrella. A pine branch fills the upper right corner, and printed scenes of shrubbery accompany some of the images.
Biographical / Historical:
Felice Beato was born in Venice around 1825. During his lifetime, he accompanied the British troops in India, recording images of the Indian Mutiny in 1857, and the Franco-British troops in China to cover the end of the Second Opium War in 1859. With his friend Charles Wirgman, Beato opened a photography studio in Yokohama, Japan in the early 1860s, and produced many images of the Japanese and their lifestyle, as interpreted by the Westerners. Selling his studio to Baron von Stillfried in 1877, Beato eventually died in Burma around 1908.
Baron von Stillfried was an Austrian noble who arrived in Japan in 1868. In 1871, von Stillfried opened a photo studio in Yokohama under the name, Messrs. Stillfried & Co. In 1877, in partnership with Hermann Anderson, von Stillfried bought Felice Beato's studio and negatives, and continued to take photographs of Japanese people. He eventually left Japan for Hong Kong in 1881.
