There is a two-story traditional German house built with a dash of art nouveau that overlooks the city of Kobe. You'd think the house out of place, except that the street it's on, Kitano, is full of such oddities. The architecture is a reflection of Kobe's internationalism. It was one of five cities opened to the West once Japan ended it's policy of seclusion. It's been a gateway to the country ever since.
