Photo taken in Bakumatsu

Bakumatsu, the period followed by Modernized Meiji Era, is the intersection between the ancient and the modern of Japan. It was the last stage of Samurai and Ninja. For example, The Last Kunoichi くノ一幕末奇譚 talked about that period.

The time never comes back, yet photos can keep the images of the time. Someone developed a program called 幕末古写真ジェネレーター to transform an inputted picture into the one with Bakumatsu style.
