【Neely Mansion】... Restored 1930’s... Restored 1930’s Historic Hori Family Furoba
【Neely Mansion】- Community Friends Booth!

The Hori Furoba (Bath house)

In 1929 Shigeichi (Jack) and Shimano Hori leased the Neely property and lived in the mansion with their four sons and one daughter.

Jack ran a small dairy and produce farm,but also worked at the F. H. Hogue packing shed in Kent. Shimano’s brother, Jitsuo Otoshi, and his wife lived in a small house on the property and helped with the farm operations.

One traditional aspect of Japanese life on the farm was the furoba, or bath house. Most families in the valley had constructed such a small building for use after a hard day of labor.

The Hori Bath House, constructed in 1930, is a one-story wood frame structure that measures 10 by 16 feet. The interior is divided into two rooms. Frank Hori (son) remembers that an entrance and window were in the first room, and a curtained door lead to the back room with the tub.

According to Mary Hori Nakamura (daughter), “We would wash ourselves outside the tub and rinse ourselves off in the front room, and then go into the back room and get in the tub to soak. The whole family took baths every night.” The bath was used to relax and socialize.

The Hori Beth House still stands behind the Neely Mansion. It has been named a King County Landmark, as it is the only such structure existing in the county today.

It has recently been restored to its former appearance. The Neely Mansion Association received funds from 4Culture and King County to restore the historic building. The interior includes a soaking tub and laundry area exhibit that portrays the 1930s era.

Japan Fair is proud to present Tomo "Angie" Hoku as our MC for our Event Stage.

Tomo (AKA Angie) has been a bilingual emcee for many years in both Hawaii and Seattle, doing various events involving Hawaiian music, hula, information technology and/or food & hospitality industries. She also works as an event promoter: she has done many Hawaiian- and Japanese-related events, and more recently is supporting Bollywood (Indian) events in the Puget Sound area. She also consults with local restaurants, training staff to provide the best in customer service.

Tomo works freelance as an interpreter and translator as well as a tour coordinator, and is also a regular contributor as a travel writer for a Japanese magazine. And as if those gigs aren't keeping her busy enough, she occasionally (and secretly?) appears as Clara, the famous Ivar's Dancing Clam.

Tomo is very excited to be part of Japan Fair 2016. Please come talk stories with her in Japanese, English, Hawaiian, Hindi or "Mollusk".

At the beginning of each morning, we combine the highest quality ingredients into our dough as we begin the process of making each individual pastry and bread. Our dedicated and determined team of bakers and chefs roll and cut every pastry and bread by hand.

As the ovens warm up, we begin baking each tray of dough and soon the nice aroma of butter, sweet fruits, cheeses and dough fill our bakery and cafe. We carefully select only the finest ingredients to make and serve the freshest, best-tasting food each and every day.
