Former Tainan Magistrate Residence(原臺南縣知事官邸)
Tokyo Prefecture, Japan
Beautiful and well preserved buildingThis is one of the most sophisticated buildings built during the Japanese occupation period and is well preserved. There is not much remnants of the Japanese Imperial family except for the souvenirs with Imperial chrysanthemum mark and a life size photo of the late Showa Emperor. Nice cafe on the ground floor.
Beautiful buildingThis is a former governor’s residence, and during Japanese governing time many royal family members visited and stayed here. Nowadays, it is a coffee shop and a accessory shop, and of course you can enter inside. Because it is on the back side of the railway station, not many tourists come here. But it is worth taking a look.
Architecture!The architecture here is so great. I like it. When we arrived, it's almost 5 o'clock. And there are so many seller in front the buildings. Some sell diy stuff and some food. This building is 2 floor. Inside the first floor it's a cafe, shoes shop and gifts shop. They sell ice cream too 😀 On the 2nd floor they sell vintage furniture. So cool! And the 1st picture is on the 2nd floor. Spend half or an hour is enough :)
Beautiful buildingIt is not a big building but quite beautiful to my eyes. It also had a very nice gift shop and a cafe.
UniqueThe building out of the 19th century, build in English colonial architectural style, intially housed the japanese local governor and visitors of the royal family. Today, you will find there a cafe and some shops. If you are interested in architecture, it is definitely worth a visit.
