The best part of this house I felt was the Conservatory room with the skylight coming in. The combination of Japanese and Western influences in the decor of the house was interesting and unusual. The garden was also quite nice.

This is worth the visit as it has a very eclectic architecture with areas typically Japanese - including the garden - and yet other parts that are distinctly Tudor and even Roman Bath in style. A number of famous Japanese authors visited during the time...More

It's a nice place to visit if you come to Atami. You can see an example of Japanese style design, walk around the building and see the rooms from the inside, and it all surrounds a beautiful Japanese landscape garden which you can also stroll.
