19th century man in Japan, a photo by chimurenga on Flickr.

I was recently looking at a lot of different sets of photos from 19th century japan when i came across this man. Its from chimurenga's flickr set. Anyway he is so super dreamy and handsome. He makes me want to write love stories about him.


  1. I think you have a case of yellow fever Shellie.

  2. hahhaahahhaa....i think you are right!

  3. i love this photo!
    i have this on my tumblr too!
    hes quite handsome too, heheh

  4. Oh I think he looks so sad and I am thinking Shogun and all that now. :) T.

  5. Are you sure you didn't find this in the
    "How To Be A Japanese Hipster" manual? I think I saw him on the L Train.

    This just goes to show you that while the West was all about starched collars and shiny brass buttons the Japanese had already evolved to textures and layering.

  6. One more thing. I'd recommend "Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan" by Lafcadio Hearn published in 1894. A westerners observations--and celebrations--on the Japanese culture.

  7. this is a beautiful photo and he's hot!!!!!

  8. jim have you been drinking your clever juice again? Thanks for the recommendation of the book and so true about that hipster look!

    I guess the concensus is that is one fine dead dude.

    Yes T he does look oh so sad i hope he had someone to make him smile every once in a while.

    Make it Easy....ha! you have him on your tumblr too thats cool i should probably put him on mine as well.
