Kitano Ijinkan

Local name北野異人館
LocationKobe, Japan

Kitano-chō or Kitano Ijinkan is a historical district in Kobe, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan, which contains a number of foreign residences from the late Meiji and early Taishō eras of Japanese history. While the term ijinkan can refer to any foreign residence of this period in Japan, it usually refers to those of Kitano given the number and high concentration of those that remain. Ijinkan districts exist in other locales, but due to war and natural disasters, these districts are not as well preserved.While some of the houses still serve as residences, many are open to tourists, making Kitano-chō one of the principal tourist attractions in Kobe.
