On the first floor is a drawing room with a fireplace and a living room-dining room. The sunroom with views of the garden includes furniture constructed by Raymond, and the 2nd floor houses an exhibition related to the Yamate Seiyokan. The old kitchen serves as a tea room, and the underground hall can be rented and used.

The largest Chinatown in Japan and East Asia is found in the vicinity of Yamashita-Cho, Naka Ward, Yokohama City. There are more than 500 shops, and 6,000 Chinese people live within an area of about 0.2㎢.

This is a vast garden opened in 1906 by Sankei Hara, a businessman who made his fortune in the silk trade. The garden contains 10 important cultural properties moved from Kyoto and Kamakura and 3 Yokohama City-designated tangible cultural properties.
