Fukuoka City Red Brick Culture Center (福岡市赤煉瓦文化館)

Historical Monument

Designed by representative Meiji architects Tatsuno Kingo and Kataoka Yasushi, this was constructed to be the Kyushu branch office of Nippon Life Insurance. The building with its roof featuring a dome, small tower and roof windows, and its characteristic red brick and white granite outer walls is an example of design that borrows from late 19th-century British style. It was designated a National Important Cultural Property in 1969 and ownership was transferred to Fukuoka City. It was used as a historical archive until 1990, then renovated and reopened in 1994 as the Red Brick Culture Center. The Fukuoka City Museum of Literature was established on the first floor as a general library, and gathers and provides a variety of information concerning literature.

          The most northerly of Kyushu island's prefectures, Fukuoka comprises castle towns, seaside parks, and Hakata ramen, one of Japan's most famous noodle dishes. Whether due to its good location or its unique charm, the prefecture's capital, Fukuoka city, has been voted one of the most desirable places to live in the country - a close-knit community, a thriving food scene, and accessible nature combine for irresistibly laid-back city vibes.
