Fukuoka City Red Brick Culture Center

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.
