Yokan Nagaya (French House)洋館長屋 仏蘭西館

Historical Monument

This is a western-style building relocated in Chuo Ward, Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture, originally built in the old foreign settlement as an apartment catering to foreigners in 1908. It is a unique building where two Western-style buildings are symmetrically connected, and because of this became known as the “Western row house”. The interior is unified with French furnishings and artworks, and on display are Art Nouveau works by Emile Galle, the Dome brothers as well as a painting by Chagall. A must see is an early era trunk of the popular “Louis Vuitton” brand.

Review of Yokan Nagaya

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/10/06 19世紀末のルイ・ヴィトンのトランクが見れます。
この施設自体はあまり印象に残りませんでしたが、19世紀末のルイ・ヴィトンのトランクは印象的でした。かつて、トランクは持ち運びしやすいように丸型だったそうですが、それを四角い形にして荷物を積み上げられるようにしたのがルイ・ヴィトンのトランクだったそうで、当時では画期的なアイディアだったそうです。
四角いトランクが画期的だなんて、思ってもみなかったので、この説明を見ただけで行った価値のある場所でした。
Reviewed:2017/12/08 居留地にあった外国人向けアパート
左右対称の木造建物は、外国人向けのアパートです。館内は、フランスの調度品やアール・ヌーヴォの代表的なガラス作家のエミール・ガレやドーム兄弟にガラス工芸が展示されています。
Reviewed:2017/11/05 外国人向けのアパート
北野エリアにある洋館長屋は2軒が左右対称に建つ面白い建物で、もともとは外国人向けのアパートだったものです。

Hyogo Main Areas

around-area-map

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.
