This two-story brick building is known as one of the most prominent Western-style buildings in the prefecture. Inside is an atrium, with a corridor on the second floor. The roof is a wooden frame covered by copper. It was originally constructed as the Sawara Branch of Kawasaki Bank, but was later donated to Katori City and now operates as a tourist information center.
