Abstract. This study intends to develop a method of learning changes in the Kyoto townscape. We conducted an experiment using the Kyoto Memorygraph with old photographs from the Kyoto City Tram and Bus Photograph Database. The key findings of this paper are the following:
- Users can easily understand the details of changes in the townscape when comparing old photographs with the current townscape using Kyoto Memorygraph.
- By using this application in tours, users who were not previously familiar with the locations and characteristics of old photographs exhibited notable learning outcomes.
