Historic place by architect who design Tokyo railway station. Place is free to visit, First floor is look like Engineer club and next on right side is Cafe. Second floor is a exhibition space and room for meeting. Place is antique but structure detail is look neat, floor is finished from wood, so there's some wood cracking sound when you walk by.

Just happened to pass by here walking around that night so I did not enter. But the building looks magnificent and well-lit all over. I'll definitely have a look inside next time.

A rare western style historical building in Fukuoka. It is a free museum for those interested in historical buildings. It takes around 5-10 mins to go through all the open areas. Good for a short visit if you are already around that area.

Beautiful architecture across from the bridge. There is a cafe and reading area for people to sit and talk. Many local people are studying and having meetings there. The second floor seems like a private area with a small section of exhibition. Not enough signs to tell foreigners what has been going on. There are not that many things to see inside. The space upstairs is not big. Overall, a quiet, historical building for holding events and talks. Oh, the entry for admission is generally free.

Free & wonderful example of art nouveau architecture and interior design. There was no major exhibit on when I visited, but it was still worth a look. Friendly staff. Brochures available in Japanese and English to explain the history.
