This was the first national bank established in 1879, and the 59th national bank in Japan. The bank was relocated to Oyakata-machi in 1904. This is the building that was constructed in the new location, designed by Sakichi Horie. Horie was a leading expert in the field of western-style construction, who also designed Osamu Dazai’s birth home, the Shayokan Museum. The building is a Renaissance style western building with decorative tower that was also used as observatory. At the tip of the tower is a decoration, the kind found on temples in India. The building is designated important intangible cultural heritage.
