Kōshien Hotel in the 1930s

The Kōshien Hotel (甲子園ホテル Kōshien Hoteru?) was a Mayan Revival-style hotel in Nishinomiya, Hyōgo, Japan, constructed by Arata Endo, a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is now used as a hall forming part of Mukogawa Women's University, and is known as the Kōshien Kaikan (甲子園会館?).

History[edit]

The Kōshien Hotel opened in 1930. From 1944, it was used as an Imperial Navy hospital, and in 1945 it became used as accommodation for the US military.[1]

In 1965, it was donated to Mukogawa Women's University, and was refurbished internally and externally.[1]
