Shioya, a town with an exotic ambience, is found in the western part of Kobe.
Houses stand along the area’s steep hill roads, and if you walk up the stairs that suddenly appear and walk a while through the narrow zigzagging alleys, you'll find they're dotted with western-style houses of a bygone era.
Guggenheim House is a colonial style residence that was built by a German merchant named Guggenheim in 1909.
Along with the fireplace and simply designed lighting, an organ and a chair found in one of the rooms have been kept as they used to be at the time. You can sense a little of how everyday life was in those days.
Today, Guggenheim House is used in many ways. Numerous events such as weddings and concerts as well as courses are held within its premises, making it a place that connects people with one another. How about a visit on your next day off?
