I've done by PDF but the community doesn't allow me to attach a PDF. Could you tell me your email so that I can send it to you?
There are companies that do Japanese genealogy translation and there are a couple Facebook pages that might help such as Japanese Translation for Fun and Japanese-English Language Exchange. You might also look for someone who reads Japanese in your community or check with your local library.

Even if you say Japanese in the 1900s, there are many different type of characters set, so I can tell what I can read if you show me the document.
What kind of document do you want to read?
The documents are backs of pictures with handwritten characters. I think they may be names (I can tell they are on one as the names are also written in English). I will try to upload them here. This is on the back of a picture of my great great grandmother - I don't even know her name and am hoping this will tell me. This is from picture of family standing in front of a house. I think it is in Tochigi. Also including the front picture - there is Japanese writing on the the house post - possibly a house number or other identifying location?
These two are on the back and outside of a picture of my great grandfather's sister.
This last one is the one with names also written in English.Also enclosing the fronts of a few pictures - they have Japanese writing printed on them that could be possibly the photography company name or something?
Thank you so much for responding to my request for assistance with translations. I greatly appreciate any help that you can give me.
