City Music Hall and Doves;

        Our city's Music Hall called
                   "Watanabe Memorial Hall, 渡辺翁記念会館"
In 1937,  this music hall was built by the 7 companies which Watanabe Suketasaku involved. He contributed largely to our city's development, you can see his statute in the picture below. This hall is known its great acoustic effect.

City music hall and the green area in front of the hall.

The other day I've noticed the 2 doves were around his statute and enjoying the beautiful late summer day.


Oh, you Love Birds.





Thank you very much for stopping by; 
Hope you all will have wonderful weekend and coming new week.

Some great pictures, and I think the pigeons in general like statues to hang out on. Interesting that I had a boss named Watanabe when I was 19 at my first job for Honda Motor Company in California.

The greenery around the City hall makes it a very inviting building to visit.

Good acoustics are so important for concert hall and theatres. I am glad your town has such a hall where you can enjoy concerts.
Nice to see the statue of the benefactor as well.

Quite a modern looking building for the era it was constructed in! Cute pigeons!
