Ben’s house (ベンの家)

 0120888581  Hyogo Pref. Koubeshi Chuou-ku Kitanochou 2-3-21

This European-style house was built in 1902 as a trading house on a former foreign settlement and rebuilt in Kitano Town of Chuo Ward, Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture. It is one of the oldest houses of its kind and once belonged to British noble and adventurer Ben Allison. It is famous for the many mounted and stuffed animal heads hunted by Mr. Allison himself. There’s a 2.5-meter-long stuffed polar bear head, a narwhal with teeth like horns, a moose, and even some endangered species.
