Gamagori Hotel, Gamagori, c. 1940.

“Stately Western-style hotel with ubiquitous Japanese-style roof and entrance, built in 1934. On the seafront at the harbor town of Gamagori, in Aichi Prefecture. Well cared for, with beautifully tended lawns and a real teahouse.”

“Gamagori is located in the middle of Japan, on the island of Honshu. It is believed that people settled here approximately 8,500 years ago. The area has many Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. A seaside resort, Gamagori lies between the Atsumi and Chita Peninsulas. The climate is mild. It rains less than 10% of the year. Even if it snows, the snow rarely settles.”
