  • Grand old historic building. Very contrast architecture design compared to most. Nice to add to your photo album. 
  • We could enjoy. Buildings in the old Otaru branch of the Bank of Japan is now in the Museum of finance. Banknotes (Bank of Japan) and other financial study.

  • Now is there as a Museum, to visit during their free of charge. Offices remain at the time. Gorgeous architecture, will you tell us at that time the so-called prosperity Buri. And be safe until the tour. Apparent prosperity Buri was called "Northern Wall Street".
