Small museum, but the admission price is low and it is worth going for those that appreciate old homes and the fact the home belonged to Japan's first modern actress makes it even more worthwhile.

One of the antique western style mansion complex in this area. Relatively big and more to see...colored glass windows and Japanese room are something to see. There's a cafe using a part of it.

It is a traditional building in my neighborhood. I love the Futabakan.It played an important role to promote electrification in Japan at Meiji era.

Futaba Museum is the former home of Japan’s first actress, Sadayakko Kawakami, and Momosuke Fukuzawa, a power station pioneer and tycoon. The house, was built in 1920, but originally located in Higashi-Futaba-cho. It was relocated to its current location in 2000 and restoration was completed in 2005. The residence is now a designated cultural property.The house, nicknamed the “Futaba Palace”, had a revolutionary design and the interior was stocked with electrical fittings that were groundbreaking at the time. Such was the influence of the occupants, that the house was regularly visited by political, financial, and cultural guests. Guided tours are available, which last 30 minutes but are conducted in Japanese, though a detailed English leaflet is available. Entry is 200 Yen.The closest metro station is Takaoka Station (Sakuradori Line) or you can take the sightseeing bus which has a stop right outside the museum.
