[Japan] Very nice CDV of an unidentified Western sailor in his uniform. Sakurada was related to Shimooka Renjo (whose family name at birth was also Sakurada) and learned photography from him. He took over Renjo's studio in 1881. The rear side reads, 'Sakurada. Photographic Artist, Corner of Otamachi Gochome, (Bashamichi), Yokohama.'
