A Medieval Chapel Sticking Out of the Facade of a Japanese Hotel

On the eighth floor of the Hotel Monterey Osaka in Japan, an exact recreation of a 14th-century European chapel juts out from the north-facing side of the otherwise rococo exterior. 

The anomalous late medieval-style church is based on a small chapel in Moorsel, Belgium. From the stonework to the stained glass, the Chapel Goedele is a beautiful and strange feature of the hotel, and a very curious sight for anyone that catches a glimpse of the building from afar.
