Former Fukuoka Prefecture Public Hall Distinguished Guest House

Is a Western-style building in a corner of Tenjin Central Park. In 1910 (Meiji 43), the Former Fukuoka Prefecture Public Hall Distinguished Guest House was constructed for the 13th Kyushu-Okinawa Association Exhibition and as a place to entertain guests. After that, it was used as a prefectural public hall. After World War Two, the building was used as the Fukuoka High Court, a Prefectual Fisheries High School and as the Prefectual Board of Education. It is now one of the few public buildings remaining to be based on French Renaissance from the Meiji Era (1868 – 1912). As such, it has been designated as an Important Cultural Asset by government. The interior of the building is open to the public, and visitors are free to observe it.
