His visit was cancelled, but the building was later used as lodgings for the Crown Prince Yoshihito (the Emperor Taisho to be) in 1907. The building is western in design with a Japanese style roof. It was designated as a tangible cultural property by Shimane Prefecture in 1969. Today, this building is used as Matsue Folk Museum.
