Travel Guide - Former Office of Karatsu Bank

InformationInformation

Since completed in 1912, this western-style building was used as a bank until 1997. The building is famous for its connection with an architect from Karatsu, Minoru Tanaka, an apprentice of Tatsuno Kingo who designed JR Tokyo Station. Using brick-styled tiles on the outer walls provides it with high-grade finishing. The bank's reception counter at that time still exists inside the building.
Today, the first floor is used as an event space, and Tatsuno Kingo's works and documents are displayed on the second floor. There is also a restaurant on the basement floor.
