Dress Up IN CHORAKUKAN, experience luxury craft-car.
On Saturday, March 2ed, we displayed craft-car in the “Dress Up Night IN CHORAKUKAN” urged by the owner of the Dinner Club· HANKYU Umeda Store. Everyone dressed up to attend the party, wandering in the music of Marimba and enjoying magic, and had a test drive in the craft-car. Everyone was amazed and moved by the craftsmanship. It combines with the architectural items of CHORAKUKAN, which stands in Kyoto and has a long history, and deduced an extraordinary space.
Was built in MEIJI 42 years (1909) as a guest house, by the tobacco King known as the industrialist – Kichibe MURAI, for entertaining guests from domestic and abroad. It will celebrate its 110th anniversary in 2019. In SHOWA 61 years (1986), it was designated as the tangible cultural heritage of Kyoto City, including the building and many furniture in it.
