80201-0024 - Prefectural Government Office


Yokohama Showa 1920s Unknown
Kanagawa Prefectural Government Office Building (神奈川県庁舎) in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. Completed in 1928 (Showa 3), the art deco building was designed by Karo Obi (小尾嘉郎, 1898-1974). It is still in use today, the second oldest government building in Japan actually used by a governor.

The building is the “King” of the “Three Towers of Yokohama.” It is considered to be the first building using the Imperial Crown Style (Teikan Yoshiki), a mixture of elements from traditional Japanese architecture and bulky western style buildings.
