I was drawn here due to the fact I'm British and lived a mere two hours away - it presented quite the novelty after living in Japan for a while. There isn't much to the building itself, with the bottom floor almost empty (although if I recall there is a little bit of info on the history of the place). The top floor acts as a tea room/restaurant offering "British food." I only ate there once, choosing the fish & chips and it was actually pretty good.
A nice European spot in the Japanese landscape. Pamphlets and the multimedia explanation was in English. Next time I would like to try the cafe on the second floor.
