The Naruto German House

Built on the site of a relocation camp where German prisoners of WWI lived for three years, the Deutsches Haus displays mementos of their daily life, tools, and cultural objects. The soldiers interacted with the local community and formed an orchestra that presented the first performance in Japan of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
