A must to see in morioka! There are a free entry lane but if you want to see all of the bank you need to pay 300 yen.😇

My favorite place to visit in Morioka. The architecture jewel should be preserved for another hundred years. Cannot imagine a bank could look like this and still operation during early 2010s. Must be a very special feel to be its customer. With a minimal fee, you could access the grand tour of this place. You may find it similar to Tokyo Station's design, because they share the same designers. Bookmark this place if you're visiting Tohoku Area.

It's just the building to me. I saw so many places likes this kinda style in many countries. I went on second week of June 2023 and there was craft exhibition, a lot of cute products were present at that time. The roses outside the building were huge, nice smell and beautiful layers.

The same designer as 丸之內 tokyo station, very beautiful architecture using geometry and you can find lots of details behind the apparent symmetry. Half (left handside from the entrance) is free entry, the other half requires a fee (300 yen? Sorry, can't really recall now cos i didn't have time to explore then). But the entry-free area is impressive enough. The staff (esp the uncle at the reception lobby) was super friendly and showed us how to take the best IG photos!

Very eye catching building in Iwate city. We drove it and it immediately captured my attention. Later on when I was going for lunch, I walked past this building again and admired the historical architecture. I did not go inside the building. I understand that the building is being used as a museum. But it was still a sight to behold.
