Nagasaki District Court President's Residence

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 16 November 2015 in Architecture.

Constructed in 1883, this Western style building was intended as the residence for the officials of the Nagasaki Court of Appeals. When this court moved to Fukuoka in 1945, the building became the residence of the president of the Nagasaki District Court. As an example of government architecture influenced by Western styles, it was dismantled and restored on this site in 1979.
