Those who walk up the slope of Olandazaka (literally 'Holland Hill') in the Kitano district of Kobe see the namesake house come into view; its nostalgic 1920s appearance remarkably preserved. The Olandakan ("Holland Building") was constructed in the hip roof style of the mid-Taisho period (No. 48 preserved historic building, as designated by the Kobe City Department of Education). Long the home of the Consulate General of the Netherlands, it has been open to the public since January 1987. Visitors can have their picture taken in traditional dress from the Volendam area of Holland and also have the chance to create their own original blended fragrance, inspired by personal details such as age, zodiac sign, and preferred music, flower and fruit. Why not visit and make a sweet memory?!
