Yamate Hachiban-Kan

Interesting
This abode, dating from the late Meiji period, is a hybrid of English Tudor and Japanese pagoda; it is furnished in a European manner and home to bronzes by Rodin, Bourdelle and paintings by Rembrandt and Dürer. Also on display are some fine Buddhas from Thailand and Gandhara, old armour and some African art, including lovely engravings of the Makonde people from Tanzania. The first-floor reception room commands a fine view of the city of Kobe and the bay.
