Sense of humour

This building was the villa of Denbee Kamiya, who was one of the most famous wine brewery founders in Japan. He was also known as the owner-manager of "Kamiya Bar" in Asakusa, Tokyo, which is known as a "Denki bran" (which literaly translates to "electronic brandy"). The building, built in 1918, looks Western-style, but inside the house, the second floor has Japanese-style rooms. We call it "Wa-Yoo Setyou" (which literaly translates to "Japanese-Western hybrid style") architecture.
When the villa was built, the coast was close so the villa of Denbee Kamiya area was popular among writers and artists as a summer resort. But nowadays, the beach is further from the villa because of landfill.

If you visit there, you will think the architecture is quite stylish.
You will also see the founder's sense of humour in the interior design, which incorporates images of grapes.

The nearest station is Keisei-Inage station on the Keisei Line. It's seven minutes walk from the station. A public gallery is also located next to the building.
