Yamate Bluff was 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 Berrick Hall, a Spanish-style house built in 1930. It was designed by the American architect J.H. Morgan on the request of B.R. Berrick, a merchant in Yokohama. The architecture has many interesting aspects, like the triple-arched portico of the entrance and decoration of the eaves with colored tiles in geometrical patterns.
