Wright Building Brewed Up by the Sake Industry
Yodoko Guest House (Former Yamamura House)
After Frank Lloyd Wright completed the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, in 1923, the “Wright style” gained popularity and Wright was commissioned to design several other buildings in Japan. Among them was this villa for the head of a brewery in the Nada district, between Kobe and Osaka. Nada has been home to Japan’s leading breweries since the 18th century and the capital and learning accumulated through this industry have fostered various cultural developments.
