Japan -> Kobe -> Kitano-Cho
Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture
The Kitano-Cho area is where wealthy foreign traders and diplomats built homes when Kobe's port was opened to Western trading. There are over 20 homes that have been beautifully preserved and are open to the public. The homes, in the Gothic Victorian style made of stone and clapboard, are called ijinkan. This is now regarded as one of Kobe's more fashionable districts.
