  • Costs 300 yen per adult to enter. The structure has 2 floors, and has a few rooms in European style which you can check out. There’s also a cafe inside just to the right from the entrance.
  • The Color of this building is very bright because it was newly painted only a few years ago. Inside is rather gorgeous partly due to the visit of prince long time ago.
