Old Fukuoka Prefectural Hall was constructed in 1910 as a guest house for VIPS visiting the Kyushu and Okinawa Product Exhibition 13th Kyoshinkai. Its pseudo French Renaissance style mirrors many municipal buildings of the Meiji period in Japan. It has been designated as a national important cultural property as it is distinctive in that it is constructed of wood. The building has been used for the regional high court, as prefectural education office and now the site of a cafe and tourist attraction.
