Early 20th century luxury lodge architecture
The "Kiunkaku" was a luxury lodge and garden with Japanese and Western architecture constructed in 1919, and frequented by the literati and dignitairies of the day.
Though it is no longer operating as lodging, it is now a popular as a film location spot for period dramas, and open to the public as an open walk through museum, having been designated a cultural property in 2000.
Accessible by 20 min. walk from JR station, or else just outside by the "Yu-yu" tourist bus Kiunkaku Stop.
