Takehara’s first post office, built in the 1870s and relocated to this location after the Second World War, is one of the finest examples of a stout Meiji Period (1868-1912) official building that you can find anywhere in the country. In a country devastated by aerial bombardment and then gripped by an obsession with modernization and the pouring of concrete, buildings like this simple post office are rarely seen in the big cities of Japan and are rarely as well-preserved as this example in Takehara.
