A beautiful blue-grey and yellow building, it has been registered as an important cultural property.
Despite being built over 100 years ago, the building’s time period’s glamorous atmosphere remains, and the building itself is beautifully maintained. The balcony offers a breathtaking view, as the building’s elevated location overlooks Hakodate’s ports and streets.
