Tasuke Bay, Hirado, Japan
Tasuke (Tas'ke) is a small bay and town on Hirado island, facing east into the Spex or Hirado Strait, just north of what is now Hirado City. This view looks north across the town to the mountains behind. The ship in the bay is HMS 'Pearl' , a 21-gun screw corvette of 1469 tons, 400 HP, commissioned for the China Station under Captain John F. Ross from May 1866. She appears from another drawing of Butt's (PAHJ2076) to have been operating with his survey ship 'Sylvia', 5 guns, 695 tons, on the survey of the western Japanese coast.
