  1. We received a comment from a student at Tsukuba University:
    Behind the group of students is the statue of Masanari Kusunoki at the corner of the courtyard in front of the Imperial Palace.

    From the fact that the students seen are all girls, we can assume that these students went to an all girls’ school.
    Sailor style school uniforms were introduced to Japan in 1920, so this photo would have been taken later than 1920.

    筑波大学の学生さんからコメントをいただきました:

    後ろに映るのは皇居前広場の一角にある楠木正成像です。
    女学生ばかりであるため、女学校の生徒たちであると推測できます。
    日本にセーラー服が導入されたのが1920年であるため、写真はそれよりも後の時代でしょう。
