What people are saying:

The reason for its name is that the tower has a metal Fengjian, which moves along the wind. The building was built in 1909, the earliest of which was a German businessman's residence. The Fengjian is more luxurious and more European aristocratic than the small, fresh MOE Huang Pavilion.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Wind Chicken Pavilion is a symbol of the Kitano Hall of Fame and is listed on the list of important cultural properties in Japan. Built in 1909, this small bungalow is home to the German businessman Gothic Fried Thomas. In addition to its sturdy architectural features, its interior is also worth a look. Architects used the art of the early 20th century to make the entire house look luxurious and elegant, yet lively and comfortable.
