Beato was one of the earliest and most prolific photographic chroniclers of Japanese life and culture during the final years of the Edo Period (1600-1867). Feudal lords of outlying provinces were obligated to maintain compounds in Edo (today’s Tokyo), where their families were required to live at least half the year. Lords Arima and Lord Kuroda, daimyo of neighboring territories, resided next to each other in Edo. In this striking photograph, the Arima home is visible on the left and the imposing residence of the Kuroda family is on the right.
