The house built for the Kure Naval Commander-in-Chief elegantly combines Japanese and Western sensibilities

At Irifuneyama Memorial Museum you’ll find a mix of traditional Japanese and Western-style rooms. The design of the main residence expressed the height of culture at the time. Handmade gold wallpaper within the residence was also used in Buckingham Palace.

A museum on site details the laborious process of creating the gorgeous wallpaper within the residence.
