Sapporo’s remaining good old…


at first

I’m sorry

Because we can’t speak english

I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence, but I would like you to understand

Thank you

In my city Sapporo
I went to the place where I can feel the most vintage.
It is the Edwin Dunn Memorial Museum in Makomanai, Minami-ku.

Mr. Edwin Dunn is a member of the
from Ohio, U.S.A. as a Hokkaido pioneer in 1880.
He came to Japan to promote the dairy and livestock industry in Hokkaido.
This memorial hall is
built as an office of a cattle ranch.
It was the base of Hokkaido’s dairy and livestock industry for about 70 years until 1946.
After that, it became a U.S. military facility, but in 1966, it was moved to its current location and preserved.

This appearance. Is this really Japan?

From the front, you suddenly feel America!
A sign in Japanese brings you back to yourself that you are in Japan.

Looking at the back, I knew it wasn’t Japan!

Just like in a western!

Wonderfully vintage with brick chimneys!

Like this.
I’ve had a little time.
I’ve tasted plenty of vintage.
It was a quiet and relaxing place.
I could have done a solid Back to the Future!
Let’s go back to the good old days!
