(14) Old Tanaka Bank Museum, Koshu, Yamanashi

The Old Tanaka Bank Museum, aka Museum Bank of Yamanashi Tanaka 旧田中銀行博物館, in Koshu, Yamanashi Prefecture 山梨県甲州市 (map).

There are two points of interest here: the main building, built in 1898, originally used as a postal telegraph office 郵便電信局舎; behind the bank is a dozo (brick storehouse or mud-wall warehouse) 土蔵 (レンガ倉庫), similar in appearance to a kura.
