Kitano Gaikokujin Club北野外国人倶楽部

Historical Monument

This gable roof Western-style residence was built in the latter part of the Meiji period, and it is also referred to as the “old Furyuga house.” When the Port of Kobe was opened, this place served as a bustling members-only social club for foreign residents, and it has been reconstructed for modern visitors. There are many stately and luxurious furnishings that exude the former elegant atmosphere even now. Must-see sights include a fireplace used during the Bourbons reign and an old firewood-style kitchen, an antique organ, a musical score from the Renaissance Period, a 19th-century horse carriage, and more.

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.
