kobayashi memorial hall

kobayashi house Yesterday, while walking to the market, Satoshi and I stopped at the Kobayashi Memorial Hall to check out their baseball exhibit.

The house is located near the Ikeda castle ruins and was the residence of the founder of the Hankyu railways, Kobayashi Ichizo.

On the ground floor of the house is a French restaurant, Gazoku Sanso.

And on the second floor is where their living quarters were. This is also where the exhibit was.

The gardens surrounding the home are also something to see too.

I'm glad we got to check out this place and hopefully we'll be able to eat at the restaurant in the coming days.
