Former Ujina Army Food Depot Building (Hiroshima City Folk Museum) (City Important Tangible Cultural Property)

The outer wall that was built during the Meiji period remains almost intact.

This is part of the canning factory of the former army's food supply branch built in 1911. It was renovated in 1984 and is currently used as the Hiroshima City Local History Museum. The Provisions Branch is a facility for producing, storing, and supplying food for soldiers and fodder for war horses, and the outer walls have been preserved almost as they were back then. The roof, which used to be made of iron, has been replaced with copper, faithfully replicating the ``kawarabobuki'' construction method that has been passed down to the present day. A two-brick retaining wall protrudes from the south exterior wall, and the central entrance has a gabled eave with a triangular gable, and a rain gutter is installed in the arch at the top of the wall. It is housed in an eaves decoration with a ball placed in the upper center.
