"A historic building situated along the Karatsu Highway in Hon-machi, Karatsu City. Designed by Minoru Tanaka, apprentice of Tokyo Station designer Kingo Tatsuno, the building was completed in 1912. The design is notable for its Japanese take on Victorian architecture, known as the ""Tatsuno style."" The building was used as a bank until 1997 when it was donated to the city. Designated an Important Cultural Property by the city, today the building is open to the general public for free."

Saga Main Areas
Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu’s Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
