Description: 天長元年(824)空海(弘法大師)が創建したと伝えられる真言宗の古刹。中央手前が山門で奥が本堂。左手前は「逆さ銀杏」(現存し東京で最大の銀杏)。安政6年(1859)6月、日米通商条約締結によりアメリカ公使館になり、初代公使としてハリス(Townsend Harris)が駐在した。アメリカ公使館は明治8年(1875)、築地明石町に移るまでここにあった。本写真はベアト(Felix Beato)が来日直後の文久3年(1863)に撮影したもの。この年水戸浪士の放火で書院などが焼失する。 / This is a Shingon Sect temple established by Kukai (Kobo Taishi) in 824. The sanmon and main hall are in the foreground and background, respectively. The large tree on the left is the "upside-down gingko," which is still the largest gingko tree in Tokyo. This spot became the site of the American Legation after the effectuation of the Japan-U.S. Commercial Treaty in June 1859. Townsend Harris was the first envoy. The Legation moved to Tsukiji Akashi-machi in 1875. This photograph was taken in 1863 by Felix Beato, soon after Harris' arrival in Japan. The study was later burned to the ground by angry samurai from the Mito Clan.
