The museum building was the former The Institute of Public Health

The building in this photo is Minato City Local History Museum. It was originally built in 1938 as The Institute of Public Health, whose purpose was the improvement in public health. It is said that the cost of the building was endowed by Rockefeller Foundation. At that time, Japan seemed to be perceived as one of the poor countries in Asia. The GNP of the USA was about tenfold greater than Japan back in those days. So it cannot be helped. Anyway, I admired the Japanese government declared hostilities against the USA in that situation.

Time passed. the workings were moved to Saitama Prefecture and only the building remained here. It became a museum in 2018 and is open to the public. And the architecture is registered as a cultural asset.
