Italian Embassy House Memorial Park (イタリア大使館別荘記念公園)

 0288550880  Tochigi Pref. Nikkoushi Chugushi 2482

This is one of the foreign residential villas that lined the shores around Lake Chuzenji from the middle of the Meiji period up until the early Showa period. It was the Italian Embassy’s summer villa which was built in 1928. Successive generations of Italian ambassadors used it until 1997 and the wooden constructed two story building has been restored to its original state based on the original blueprints of the time. The first floor ceiling which was made with cedar bark is reminiscent of the architecture of a Japanese tea ceremony arbour, while the outer wall which is made with Nikko Japanese cedar bark and thin planks has a chequered design but engenders a beautiful modern atmosphere.
