Living Quarters

This is the Chief Factor's quarters. The Chief Factor was the Dutch East India Company official in charge on Dejima. Notice the mix of Western wallpaper and Japanese tatami mats on the floor.

We were taught in school that the Japanese do not use chairs, but to sit on the floor. So that was 55 years ago.

@Jypyä Pop: A Dutch official lived here. Hence, the Western style furniture.
