Overview

Just west of Chuo Park, along Naka River and just before the Fukuhaku Deai Bridge, there is an attractive building that is certain to catch your eye and pique your curiosity. As the building was constructed in 1910, the architecture reminds many of the very late Victorian age. Following construction, the general public used the building as a prefectural civil hall. After the second World War, it became the Fukuoka High Court, until the Fukuoka Prefectural Board of education moved in in 1956. Since 1981 it has been basically empty, except for tables, chairs, curtains, chandeliers, and other relics of an age gone by. Visitors may enter the building for a few hundred yen, but only those with an interest in older interior design and architecture would find it worthwhile.
