Nowadays, Japanese people have few opportunities to wear such traditional Japanese clothes as a kimono or hakama. But 100 years ago, many people wore traditional Japanese clothes in daily life.
What is shown here are photographs that were taken around 1910, or about 125 years ago from now. They were taken for the purpose of attracting tourists from overseas.
Of course, at that time the photos were in black and white, but with current technology they have been revived as color photographs.
After war and rapid economic growth, how much has Japan changed in the past 100 years?
Please use your imagination while looking at these photos.
