Mizuho Bank Kyoto Chuo Branch Building Reviews
壁に上西門院の御所跡（三條南殿）というのを見て久しぶりに昔の大河ドラマ「平清盛」を思い出しました。平治の乱時、後白河上皇と一緒に小部屋に閉じ込められた上皇の姉君になります。その後も二条天皇派に対する後白河上皇派の中心人物として上皇を支えた人物です。あの頃の歴史は白河上皇から始まり後白河上皇までは大変激動の時代、ふと歴史に浸ってしまいました。「みずほ銀行」のビルの口コミ・・・レトロ感が有って良いので... more »I remembered the old Daiga drama "HiraKiyomori" after a long time when I saw the ruins of Kaminishi Monin On the wall called Sanjo Nanden. It becomes the elder sister of The Empress who was confined to the small room with Prince Shirakawa at the time of the war of Hiraji. Afterwards, it is a person who supported The Empress as a central figure of the Post-Shirakawa Kamisect against the Nijo Emperor's sect. The history of those days began with The Shirakawa Kami-ei, and after the period of great upheaval, I was immersed in history. "Mizuho Bank" building reviews ... I think it is good to have a retro feeling.
東京駅や日本銀行本店の設計で知られる辰野金吾が設計した建物で、第一銀行京都支店として創建された。いわゆる三条レトロのひとつだ。ここもそうだが、外観の意匠で赤レンガに白い石をめぐらせる手法は「辰野式建築」と呼ばれ、多くの後進が模倣した。ただ、現在の建物は2003年の再建だ。 more »This building was designed by Kingo Tatsuno, who is known for designing Tokyo Station and the Bank of Japan's head office, and was built as the First Bank Kyoto Branch. It is one of the so-called Sanjo retro. As is the case here, the design of the exterior and the method of turning white stone around the red brick is called "Tatsuno-style architecture", and many juniors imitated it. However, the current building was rebuilt in 2003.
It is supposed to be the main Kyoto branch of Mizuho but they are pretty limited in their capabilities. No English speaking staff and atm is hit or miss depending on your home bank whether you will be able to take out money or not. Staff is polite and will try to help you though so that is a plus. Also, historical building adds to the atmosphere a bit as well.
In the first Bank of Kyoto branch was originally built in 0/1906 (1906). To design in Tatsuno kingo Tatsuno style called red brick style of the white band. Dismantled in 1999 and 2003, built by the replica.
