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

Other Historic Site/Building

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.

Hyogo Main Areas


Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
