The formal European garden at Uchida House at Yamate Bluff - the original foreign settlement in Japan. The Bluff is strongly connected historically to the city of Yokohama. Beautifully restored western style houses have been preserved as museums and concert halls and has made the Bluff a favorite place to stroll in Yokohama. This is Home of a Diplomat. Originally it was the Uchida Residence, built in Shibuya, Tokyo in 1910, and later removed and reconstructed on this site. It was built by Sadatsuchi Uchida, a diplomat in the Meiji Government who served as consul-general in New York. Reflecting the tastes of Uchida, who had lived overseas for many years, the house is designed completely in western style. The building is a fine example of the style of its designer, James McDonald Garner.
