With its striking orange Western-style roof, grand parlor dappled with light through stained-glass windows and serenely traditional Japanese-style rooms, this fine example of East-West cultural fusion and heady Taisho-era romanticism has been restored to its rightful place as one of the major attractions of the Cultural Path that wends from Nagoya Castle to Tokugawaen.

The former home of "Japan’s first actress", Sadayakko Kawakami, and the "king of electric power", Momosuke Fukuzawa, from the Taisho era to the early Showa era has been relocated and restored, and now stores and displays a marathon range of Sadayakko-related materials as well as literature with a connection to the local area.
