Kofu City Fujimura Memorial Hall (National Cultural Important Property)
The Kofu City Fujimura Memorial Hall was originally built in 1875 as a building for the Mutsuzawa School. The architectural design is called “Fujimura Style Architecture”, which was promoted by Mr. Fujimura Shiro (1845?1909), the governor of Yamanashi at that time. This style is typical “pseudo-Western-style” architecture, which contains Western architectural elements along with a Japanese style roof. The building was relocated to the Takeda Shrine in 1966 and designated a National Cultural Important Property in 1967. Since 1968, the building has been used as a museum that exhibits history, traditional daily life, archaeology, and educational archives of Kofu City. In 2010, the building was again relocated to the North Exit of Kofu Station. Although the exhibition of this hall focuses on the modern history of the region, a deep pot from the Middle Jomon Period (c. 3,500?2,500 BC) found at Ushiro site is exhibited at this hall.
