Genjiro enjoyed strolling around the surroundings of Holley House and found painting subjects.
In 1890, over 120 years ago, there was extensive gorgeous natural and rural scenery which changed by the season. Also there were beautiful nostalgic colonial style houses. Examples of the beauty include:
Colonial style Holley House
Rural site of Cos Cob
Seascape in Greenwich Point
Genjiro and his colleagues often painted these surroundings.
