Uroko Art Museum, Ijinkan, Kobe

Uroko House (Uroko no ie) and Uroko Museum are located in Ijinkan, the famous area of foreign residences in Kobe. I mentioned Ijinkan in the posts on 14 and 15 August.

It is also called the Fish Scale House because of its outer look, and it is a Registered Cultural Property of Japan. The view from its third floor over Kobe City is superb. The museum exhibits paintings by Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse, Maurice Utrillo.

"St. Helena, Constantinople":

Apart from British and German objects, there is also this royal sled, made of walnut trees and used by the Denmark royal family in the late 18th century.
