The jauntily painted Kōshi-byō shrine claims to be the only Confucian shrine built by and for Chinese outside China, and the statues of sages in its courtyard certainly make you feel like you've journeyed across the sea. The original 1893 building was destroyed by fire following the A-bomb explosion.Behind it, a glossy museum of Chinese art spans jade artefacts and Neolithic archaeological finds to terracotta warriors and Qing-dynasty porcelain. There's also a large gift shop with Chinese trinkets, from classy to kitschy.
In the Dutch Slopes, the quiet Ko-shashin-shiryōkan showcases the area's history (note that most signage is in Japanese). The combined admission is for Maizō-shiryōkan as well.
