    元町・中華街駅から徒歩10分ほど。見える丘公園内にある。入館料200円。建物は倉敷アイビースクエアなどを手掛けた浦辺鎮太郎の設計。バラ窓のようなデザインが特徴的である。 館内には横浜生まれの作家・大佛次郎の原稿や書籍などの展示や、書斎を忠実に再現した部屋があるが、多くの人にとっては興味を引かれるものではないのであろう。よほど時間があればぶらっと入ってみてもいいかもしれません。

Kanagawa Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
