Pujie's House

Pujie (溥傑), the younger brother of the last emperor of China, briefly lived in Chiba-shi with his wife, Hiro, in 1937 just after they got married. The house is well looked after by Chiba-shi and is open to the public for free.

Pujie and his wife would have lived there longer but the war made it impossible just like everything for everyone else at that time.
