Yamate No.68

Yokohama Yamate’s Western Houses-3

Yamate No.68 stands inside Yamate Koen Park, where the history of tennis began in Japan. The house was built in 1934 as a residence of C.F. Franco who was an employee of Toyo Babcock (now a world wide boiler company, Babcock-Hitachi). The original location was near the intersection of Daikan-sakaue, but Yokohama City purchased the house and re-built it here at its present location in 1986. An index of this series is here.
