80110-0055 - Osaka Central Public Hall


Osaka Showa 1920s Unknown
Osaka Central Public Hall (中央公会堂, Osakashi Chuo Kokaido) on Nakanoshima, Osaka. It was designed by Shinichiro Okada (岡田 信一郎, 1883-1932) and opened in 1918 (Taisho 7). The construction was made possible by the financial contribution of 1 million yen by speculator and businessman Einosuke Iwamoto (岩本 栄之助, 11877-1916). Unfortunately, Iwamoto lost his fortune in the market and committed suicide before the building was finished. He was only 39 years old.
