・The design of the glass at the first floor entrance and the corridor of the second floor followed the style of the early Showa Era. You can embrace the ancient charm by admiring the design of the glass and wood. ・The unique decorations of the windows were designed by Inami in Tooyama. ・You can also find many historic items in the museum, for example: an about 100-years-old cashier and Japanese style painted rack.
Comment
Although the Okuzaemon, which is built in 1914, is not a Gasshou but a Japanese style traditional building, the pillar of the Gasshou was used in its construction. The characteristic of Okuzaemon is its plastered wall in the Study Hall. You are able to see the techniques of the Japanese ancient workmen here.
