On this type of souvenir photographs from Japan, see Winkel, Souvenirs from Japan p.20ff: "The photographs visitors took home betrayed their conservative tastes. The romantic sights and scenery, enjoyed for centuries by the Japanese themselves, became the places also favoured by the tourists, and were a popular subject in their photo-albums. As concerns the depiction of Japanese people, however, the foreigners preferred scenes conveying Japan's exotic and feudal image."
