Dutch Windmill in Japan

Google Street View

This windmill in the town of Sakura, in northern Chiba Prefecture, Japan was erected by a Dutch company on the occasion of 40th anniversary of founding of the city.

Known as 'De Liefde' it is named after the first Dutch sailing ship which landed on the Japanese shore in 1600. Reportedly it is the only windmill of this type in Japan.

To give to an authentic look it even has a Dutch style small drawbridge at its entrance and Tulips are grown in the surrounding grounds.
