Christmas decorations representing 2013 were shown to the public Wednesday at a house museum in the historical Kitano district at the foot of Mount Rokko in Kobe.

The display features a Santa Claus clambering up the tower at the Uroko Museum of Art, also known as Urokono-Ie, or Fish Scale House, in the district packed with Western-style residences, or “ijinkan,” built by foreigners after the opening of the port of Kobe.
