Kitano Alien Hall is the general name of the Alien Hall in Kitano Prefecture of Kobe City, "Alien Hall" refers to the house of foreigners. It mainly refers to the opening of Kobe Harbour in 1968 after the end of the policy of lock-up in Japan. During the Meiji era, many foreigners lived here every day, and the residential Alien Hall as a foreigner began to build gradually. At that time, more than 200 different halls were built. There are only about sixty Western buildings left, of which more than twenty are open to the public. Take the subway to Sangong, get off, cross Beiyebang, and go north. It takes 10.15 minutes to get to Alien Street. When the weather is good, strolling along the trail in Beiye is the best route. Along the way, you can see many beautiful flowers. The orange flower has a strange shape and I don't know what it is. I like the manhole covers here most. Each one is different and has its name engraved. Each cafe, restaurant, is also a single foreign house, romantic and warm. Among these 19th-century Western-style buildings, the most famous ones are "Wind Seeing Chicken House" and "Menghuang House". The "Wind Seeing Chicken House" with strong European color is named after "Wind Seeing Chicken House" which stands on the roof of the triangle. It stands in the traditional tone of Japan, highlighting its beautiful carving and beautiful architectural curve. The Museum of Menghuang is the residence of Thomas, a German businessman. Therefore, German traditional design is adopted in the living room, dining room and bedroom. Because the walls are yellow, it is called the Museum of Menghuang. Kitano Alien Museum has all kinds of common coupons. According to the plan, we bought two common coupons (popular chicken house, Menghuang Museum) and a separate British coupon. You can buy common coupons according to your itinerary. There are many discounts. The ticket booth is next to City Loop Kitano Alien Museum Station.
Kobe Kitano Alien Hall Street. It is 10.15 minutes from Miyagi, Japan, through Kitano, all the way north to Alien Hall Street. If you start from the new Kobe station, the Beiye trail is the best route. Because Kobe was a place where foreigners lived during the Meiji Port Opening Period, it left behind a large number of 19th century Western-style buildings, which are very distinctive, collectively known as "Alien Hall". Among them, the most famous ones are "Wind Seeing Chicken House" and "Menghuang House" - "Wind Seeing Chicken House with strong European color" named after "Wind Seeing Chicken House" which stands on the roof of the triangle. It stands in the traditional tones of Japan, highlighting its beautiful carvings and beautiful architectural curves.
The narrow streets are built on the hills, with more than 20 Western-style buildings preserved in their original appearance around 1900, as well as the old Chinese consulate of Wang Wei government. Each one has its own style, and can be visited inside. Tickets are purchased independently, Two-hall tickets, three-hall tickets, six-hall tickets, eight-hall tickets, etc. The prices of single Hall are different, the joint tickets are preferential, and the multi-hall tickets are a passport-like book that can be covered by each hall. Chapter 8, buy a joint ticket to change a dress for free to take photos. Among them, "Wind Seeing Chicken House" is a red brick building with a roof set with wind seeing chicken, which has been designated as Japan's national cultural heritage.
Kitano Exotic Hall, Kobe European-style building concentration area. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from Sangong Metro Station, all the way up the slope. Apart from Kobe Tower and Kobe Harbor, almost all the scenic spots in Kobe City are concentrated in Beiye Exotic Hall. Here are Japan's first Starbucks, the Museum of Menghuang, the popular chicken and the Tianman Palace in Kitano, praying for study. There are few tourists along the way. They can walk slowly and take pictures of the scenery. Or just find a coffee shop for afternoon tea. There are also many old-fashioned desserts here. Frantz's strawberry truffle chocolate and pudding are not to be missed, along with ice cream and doughnuts from Hexa Ranch. Kobe-limited Royce pudding and local yellow pudding, each is delicious. The journey can start from Starbucks and head for the Yellow Pavilion. Then to Wind Seeing Chicken and Beiye Tianmangong. It takes about two hours to walk down the whole way. Beiye Tianman Palace is a free visit. The Museum of Menghuang and the Wind-Seeing Chicken can be visited inside. The ticket prices are not high.
Kobe's Beino District should be the old Xiushui Street in Beijing. It's all embassies of different countries. France's embassies are relatively low. It's like a house with colored steel plates. Britain's embassies are much taller and taller. The Chinese embassies are obviously very low-key and the houses are not big. There are a lot of antique furniture and famous paintings from the Qing Dynasty inside. Is the British Embassy's pick-up van old Bentley? The table is also British. Beiye District is on the hill, so you can also see Kobe's scenery. It's very beautiful.
Kitano Alien Hall is here just after a stroll. It's still in a good geographical position. The stairs are very steep. It has a good view of Kobe City, but the shrine is very small. I went to trick Art Museum and volunteered to take pictures of a young Japanese couple. Every time I took a picture of a young man on his cell phone, he took a breath in his face and shouted "and then they were so excited that they jumped up and made me feel like I had done something amazing.
The buildings are beautiful. After all, there are many Meiji buildings. It's small but beautiful! Many houses in Japan are quite small, but even if they are small and stacked up nicely, they like the scenic spots, but many of them are similar and different, so it is not necessary for many museums to go to all of them!
It's interesting that the former embassies of various countries were clustered in an area with a lot of tourists. There's always the illusion of going through the famous detective Conan Theatre. Time is running out. Several libraries have not been able to enjoy themselves.
This place before in the text did not know Japanese when I saw strangers always think that they are savages, casual photography is good, it is best not to come alone, no one to take photos of many interesting places can not see the effect - the building is very beautiful, after all, many Meiji period buildings. It's small but beautiful!
