Kanagawa Kenritsu Rekishi Hakubutsukan (Kanagawa Prefectural Historical Museum)

Kanagawa Kenritsu Rekishi Hakubutsukan (The Kanagawa Prefectural Historical Museum) is located on Basha-michi Dori in the city of Yokohama, and is an imposing building with an eye-catching dome roof. The Museum was built as the headquarters of the Yokohama Specie Bank from 1899-1904, in the German neo-baroque style. As a valuable example of early 20th century architecture, it was designated an Important Cultural Property by the national government in 1969. The history of Kanagawa Prefecture including Yokohama, ranging from ancient to modern times, is presented in five sections inside the building, which is so quiet and restful that the visitors feel as if they have traveled through time into the past. Exhibitions of ukiyo-e woodblock prints are also held here several times a year.
