The British House, or the Igirisu-kan as the Japanese call it, is an elegant colonial-style building standing in the Harbor View Park on the crest of the "Bluff" overlooking Tokyo Bay. The British House was built in 1937. At that time Harbor View Park was known as British Hill, and the British House was constructed as the official mansion for the British Consulate General. Outside British House is a beautiful English Rose Garden. The City of Yokohama purchased the property in 1967, and today the house and garden are rented out to groups who want to stage special events.
