Description

Clockwise from top: a train leaving a station while an expres is arriving in the distance; a railway employee operating points; a footbridge spanning the tracks at a station. Railways were constructed in Japan from 1854, first under foreign direction, but from the 1880s with little outside help. Woodblock prints like this one introduced modern western technology to the Japanese public.
