I went to “Former Aboshi Bank”. A clothing store in a modern building designated as a tangible cultural property?
“Former Aboshi Bank”
A modern building in Aboshi Ward, Himeji. The “Former Aboshi Bank” is a bank with a long history in which Arji of the “former Yamamoto family” in Aboshi Ward also served as president, and later merged into Mitsui Bank? It seems that it has become It is a modern architecture of the Taisho era, made of bricks, and is also an important cultural property of Himeji City. It’s still a little small, and when I went there, it was a clothing store and he thought the sign was a little annoying.
Going to a restaurant in the future…
Since the important building is a clothing store, it’s hard to take a photo of the signboard, which is a pity. It looks like it will be a restaurant in the future. “It’s not popular, is it?” It doesn’t seem possible for a high-class restaurant in the area, and in the city center, such old-fashioned modern buildings can be used as a high-class restaurant. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a wedding hall or a hotel? The management covers the maintenance costs, but since it’s an urban area, there are a lot of people and a lot of companies. I think it would be better for a public body to buy these kinds of regional important cultural properties, maintain them, leave the contents as museums, and charge an entrance fee… What do you think?
