Yokohama Port Opening Memorial Hall (also known as "Jack Tower", ジャックの塔) in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. Designed by Shigeyoshi Fukuda (福田重義, 1887-1971) and Shichigoro Yamada (山田七五郎, 1871-1945), it was completed in 1917 (Taisho 6). The interior burned in the Great Kanto earthquake of 1923 (Taisho 12), but it was restored in 1927 (Showa 2). Ca. 1930s.
