"This six-panel screen painting depicts the bird’s-eye view of Nagasaki in the late 17th century. The vantage point of this painting seems to be put above the Inasa area. We virtually glance over Nagasaki, from the east to the west.
On the center of the second panel from the right, a manmade island called “Dejima” and “Bugyosho (magistrate’s office)” were drawn. Behind these landmarks, we can see the special district called “Tōjin Yashiki” for Chinese merchants.
