The Former Foreign Settlement 38th Building (旧居留地38番館)

 0783318121  Hyogo Pref. Koubeshi Chuou-ku Akashimachi 38

This is a piece of American Renaissance modern architecture built in 1929 in a spot which is a five-minute walk from Motomachi Station. First built as the Citibank Kobe branch, the building’s number “38” was the section number of the area in the era of foreign settlement. Now it is used as a separate building of Daimaru Kobe department store, full of stylish tearooms and popular fashion brand stores. The Kobe-style building emanates exotic flavor, even more so when lit up at night.
