This is a private club so you can only take pictures outside this histrionic building. This Mojiko retro area forms a major attraction in kitakyushu .

This building was built by Mitsui finance group, and it was used to use as a guest house for VIP of companies. Mr. and Mrs. Einstein stayed there when they traveled in Japan. Nowadays it is used as a restaurant and a event space. Visitors are able to visit and look at inside of the event hall.
