Okurayama Memorial Hall2.0
Okurayama Memorial Hall in Yokohama was built in 1932 as the main building of Okura Mental and Cultural Laboratory, by a business-man Okura Kunihiko, who was the president of Toyo University. The hall was donated to Yokohama City in 1981, and after a major renovation to preserve the building, the hall was reborn as Okurayama Memorial Hall in 1984. The hall was designated as a tangible cultural property of Yokohama City in 1991, as the hall occupies an important place in the modern architechtural market. Visitors are not allowed to view the hall and the meeting room as the building is usually used as a local facility, but are able to see the common space such as the entrance. Besides, this building has been used as a filming location for many movies and television.
