Nagoya-City Cultural Path Shumokukan (Bunka-no-Michi Shumokukan)

  • Cultural Path Shumokukan (Bunka-no-Michi Shumokukan)

Cultural Path Shumokukan, the former residence of ceramics exporter Tamesaburo Imoto, is an oasis of calm situated in the corner of a busy urban city. It expresses the memories of the times it has seen since the Taisho era. Colorful layers of light fill the air of the Western-style building, while nostalgic aromas fill the air of the Japanese-style building. The garden shows the charms of the changing seasons.
