Old Kagoshima Spinning Engineers' House (the Foreigners' Residence)旧鹿児島紡績所技師館(異人館)

Historical Monument

When the Kagoshima Spinning Mill was built in 1867 as Japan’s first Western-style spinning mill, this structure was built to house seven English engineers invited to provide guidance regarding the plant. The building is a rare extant example of early Meiji period Western-style architecture in Japan. The building was registered as a World Heritage site in 2015 under the collective “Sites of Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution: Iron and Steel, Shipbuilding and Coal Mining.”

Review of Former Kagoshima Bosekijogishikan

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/02/01 You shouldn't miss this when visiting Sengan-en.
Many tourists visit the gardens of Sengan-en and Shouko Shuuseikan which sit next to each other but tend to miss this tourist attraction because it is in a separate location and not as much promoted...
Reviewed:2016/11/08 good place to learn history
I prefer this place to Senganen, the latter is too touristic and so many people were there. I was the only one visiting this place and so I could stay calm and read many interesting articles...
Reviewed:2018/11/07 産業史の博物館
仙巌園から歩いても5分ほどです。建物は異人館の造りですが、内部は産業史の博物館で内部の装飾を楽しむという建物ではありません。当時の食堂を再現した部屋がありますが、装飾は当時のものではなく、再現したもので残念でした。神戸の異人館を想像していたので、ちょっとがっかりしました。

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinksーshochu.
