Working for many years with the European photographers Felice Beato and Baron Raimund von Stillfried as a photographic colourist and assistant, in 1881 the Japanese photographer Kusakabe Kimbei finally opened his own workshop in the Benten quarter of Yokohama. He'd soon establish himself as one of the most respected and successful Japanese photographers of his generation, opening another studio in Yokohama's Honmachi quarter 1889, and also a branch in the Ginza quarter of Tokyo.
