3D digital reconstruction of Nihonbashi Street in the year of 1805 as a historical hypothesis
The 3D reconstruction digitally represents street life on Edo’s
(present-day Tokyo) Nihonbashi Street at the southwest corner of
Honshirogane-cho Street during the Bunka Era at the beginning of the 19th
century - specifically, in 1805 - as accurately as the historical evidence
allows. It attempts to present a particular instance of street life in a visual
way that spatializes historical knowledge and presents a legitimate hypothesis on lost built environment of Tokyo.
