Former Yagishita Residence is a modern Japanese house in which western and Japanese-style buildings are connected. The old house was donated to Yokohama City, which acquired the land as well in 1996. The city put on a great effort to restore the old house to its original state and now it's open to the public. Visitors can experience the atmosphere of people's daily life from the Taisho to the early Showa periods. The house is also available for various cultural activities of citizens.
