Hirobumi Ito's Old Villa in Kanazawa

Hirobumi Ito's Old Villa in Kanazawa

The Former Kanazawa Villa of Hirobumi Ito was built in 1898 by Hirobumi Ito, who served as the first Prime Minister of Japan. Hirobumi Ito is said to have built the temple because he liked the scenic beauty of Kanazawa, and Emperor Taisho and the Crown Prince of Korea also visited.

During the Meiji period, the area around Kanazawa, including Tomioka, attracted attention as a beach villa area in the suburbs of Tokyo. Gyokudo and others built villas. After that, Oiso and Hayama prospered as vacation home areas, and Kanazawa finished its role. The former Hirobumi Ito Kanazawa villa is one of the few valuable architectural remains of the villa area at that time.

In November 2006, it was designated as a Yokohama-designated tangible cultural property. It was decided to restore it to its original appearance.

Construction began in June 2008 and was completed along with the garden in October 2009.

Materials and furnishings related to Hirobumi Ito are displayed in the residence. In addition, the garden offers a panoramic view of the sea, and visitors can enjoy seasonal flowers, such as the Kanazawa-ku flower "Peon", and is open to the public as a place of relaxation for citizens to come into contact with history and culture.
